School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 8 Up-Arguments both for and against these two contentious issues are presented in an organized and accessible, if somewhat dry, manner. Heavily footnoted, each book presents both state and federal court cases to illustrate how the opposing viewpoints have affected the country. Both titles contain several pages of addenda including moot court topic suggestions and chapter notes. Students should be able to find considerable research material in each book. However, in Cruzan v. Missouri, while the seminal cases such as the one argued on behalf of Karen Quinlan are discussed in detail, the book does not include all of the events surrounding the death of Terri Schiavo. As thorough as the rest of the book is, it is already dated.-Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
