Featured Resource List

Winnifred Fallers Sullivan. Prison religion : faith-based reform and the constitution. Princeton University Press, c2009.

KF228.A653 S85 2009

 

This book takes up important questions regarding the separation of church and state through a close examination of a recent trial challenging the constitutionality of a faith-based residential rehabilitation program in an Iowa state prison, a trial in which the author served as an expert witness for the prisoner-plaintiffs. Using the trial to illuminate the interrelationship of American law and religion today, Sullivan argues that the plaintiffs' case unintentionally shows that separation of church and state is no longer possible because religious authority has radically shifted from institutions to individuals, making it difficult to define religion, let alone disentangle it from the state. In the course of advancing this unconventional view, this book casts new light on church-state law, the debate over government-funded faith-based programs, and the predicament of prisoners who have precious little choice about what kind of rehabilitation they receive, if they are offered any at all.

 

 

Lynn Hagger. The child as vulnerable patient : protection and empowerment. Ashgate Pub., c2009.

KD3405.C48H34 2009

                    

This book focuses on key questions in health care and child protection: How can medical law and ethics take forward the issue of children’s empowerment and protection? What are the key factors in considering the balance between protecting the welfare of the young and allowing them rights to autonomy? This book investigates the role that a human rights approach can play in establishing the parameters of autonomy and discusses the opportunities presented in the Human Rights Act, the European Convention on the Rights of the Child and new policy initiatives in the NHS.
