Shawn Francis Peters

When prayer fails: faith healing, children, and the law. Oxford University Press, 2008.

KF3826.C48P48 2008

 

This book is the first to fully examine the complex web of legal and ethical questions that arise when criminal prosecutions are mounted against parents whose children die as a result of the phenomenon known as religion-based medical neglect. Peters offers a review of important legal cases in both England and America from the 19th century to the present day. He devotes special attention to cases involving Christian Science, the source of many religion-based medical neglect deaths, but also considers cases arising from the refusal of Jehovah's witnesses to allow blood transfusions or inoculations. Based on a wide array of primary and secondary source materials, this book explores efforts by the legal system to balance judicial protections for the religious liberty of faith-healers against the state's obligation to safeguard the rights of children.

 

Daniel A. Farber, Jim Chen

Disasters and the law: Katrina and beyond. Aspen Publishers, 2006.

KF3750.F37 2006

 

This book studies disaster response, prevention, and mitigation strategies. By integrating knowledge and experience from fields as diverse as urban planning, bankruptcy law, and wetlands law, the authors talk about the legal process in disaster response and reconstruction. Past responses to Hurricane Andrew, the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 and the Loma Prieta Earthquake also are discussed along with a history of U.S. disaster response efforts.
