Dying to Please You: Indigenous Suicide in Contemporary Canada offers and in-depth look at the crisis of Indigenous suicide in Canada. It compels us to rethink our definition of suicide and treatment methods, and re-examine the political and primary cause of Indigenous suicide. Written for those who are facing the challenge of unnecessary deaths, of themselves or of others around them, the authors strive to prevent such deaths and for the people involved to reach an understanding of what is really happening. This important book provides the framework of history of, research and theory on, and clear alternatives to Indigenous suicide.
