Featured Resource List

 

 

David Price. Human tissue in transplantation and research : a model legal and ethical donation framework. Cambridge University Press, 2009.

K3611.T7P74 2009

 

This book discusses the policy dilemmas created by deficiencies and shortfalls in the supply of human organs for transplantation and human tissue for research.  The author weighs the interests of the parties involved and sets out a legal and policy framework that aims to protect the interests of donors and professional users through tailored property entitlements, but without presupposing rights to trade in “original” materials.

 

 

 

 

 

Ediberto Román. Citizenship and its exclusions : a classical, constitutional, and critical race critique. New York University Press, 2010.

K3224.R66 2010

 

This book provides an analysis of citizenship’s contradictions, explaining that citizenship has historically been exclusive and illusive for many.  It offers an exploration of citizenship from antiquity to the present and examines how past precedents have influenced U.S. law and policy regulating the citizenship status of indigenous and territorial island people as well as how different levels of membership have created a de facto subordinate citizenship status for many members of American society.
