Assisted suicide : the liberal, humanist case against legalization / Kevin Yuill, University of Sunderland, UK.

Location: lax
Call #: R726 .Y85 2013
Publisher:


Critical of both sides of the discussion, this book presents an up-to-date analysis of the direction discussion is taking, showing that atheists, libertarians, those favouring abortion rights and stem-cell research should stand beside their religious compatriots in opposing legalization of assisted suicide. The author shows that the real issue behind the debate is not euthanasia but suicide. Rather than focusing on tragic cases, he indicates the real damage that will be done if we affirm the suicidal wishes of even a small segment of the population. Analyzing the movement for the right to die in historical terms, Yuill shows that, though many proponents of a change in the law believe they are rationalist heirs of such thinkers as John Stuart Mill, legalizing assisted suicide will reduce privacy and freedom. Finally, Yuill suggests a radical alternative to legalization of assisted suicide that would embrace both the cause of freedom and the anxieties of many about securing good deaths.

Intimate associations : the law and culture of American families / J. Herbie DiFonzo and Ruth C. Stern.

Location: lax
Call #: KF505 .D54 2013
Publisher:


The rise in divorce, cohabitation, single parenthood and same-sex partnerships along with an increase in surrogacy, adoption and assisted reproductive technologies has led to many diverse configurations of families, or intimate associations. The authors show that children of married parents fare better than children in a household formed by cohabiting adults. This is not to condemn non-traditional families but to point out that society and the law do not adequately provide for their needs. In conclusion, they call for a legal system that can adapt to the continually changing reality of family life. Find out more (catalog link)

Managing family justice in diverse societies / edited by Mavis Maclean and John Eekelaar.

Location: lax
Call #: K487.C8 M36 2013
Publisher: Hart Publishing,


The aim of this book is to explore what response the law has or should have to different family practices arising from cultural and religious beliefs. The issue has become increasingly debated as western countries have become more culturally diverse. Although discussion has frequently focused on the role Islamic family law should have in these countries, this book seeks to set that discussion within a wider context that includes consideration both of theoretical issues and also of empirical data about the interaction between specific family practices and state law in a variety of jurisdictions ranging from England and Wales to Bangladesh, Botswana, Spain, Poland, France, Israel, Iran and South Africa.

Social change in America : from the Revolution through the Civil War / Christopher Clark.

Location: lax
Call #: HN57 .C548 2006
Publisher: Ivan R. Dee,


The processes of social change in the late colonial period and early years of the new Republic made a dramatic imprint on the character of American society. These changes over a century or more were rooted in the origins of the United States, its rapid expansion of people and territory, its patterns of economic change and development, and the conflicts that led to its cataclysmic division and reunification through the Civil War. Christopher Clark's brilliant account of these changes in the social relationships of Americans breaks new ground in its emphasis on the crucial importance of free and unfree labor, regional characteristics, and the sustained tension between arguments for geographic expansion versus economic development.
