Featured Resource List

Maya Sabatello. Children's bioethics : the international biopolitical discourse on harmful traditional practices and the right of the child to cultural identity. Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2009. K639.S23 2009

 

This book looks at the “body politics” of religious and cultural medical practices - from “harmful traditional practices” to genetic engineering. Building on literature from medical anthropology, cultural studies, disability studies, social sciences, and law, the author explores the international discourse on children’s bioethics from a previously uncharted child-centered approach. In light of the existing multiculturalism, she contends that in the discourse on children's bioethics, not only must the medical, social and, anthropological nexus of the child be taken into account, but that incorporating identity claims into the legal discourse is also essential for the child’s voice to be heard.

 

Mark S. Kende. Constitutional rights in two worlds : South Africa and the United States. Cambridge University Press, 2009.

K3240.K46 2009

                    

This book examines the Constitutional Court in detail to determine how it has functioned during South Africa’s transition and compares its rulings to those of the U.S. Supreme Court on similar rights issues. The book also analyzes the scholarly debate about the Constitutional Court taking place in South Africa. It furthermore addresses the arguments of those international scholars who have suggested that constitutional courts do not generally bring about social change. In the end, the book highlights a transformative pragmatic method of constitutional interpretation – a method the U.S. Supreme Court could employ.
