About the Author:

KAREN DONNELLY lives in the English seaside town of Brighton, where for the past twenty years she has been working as a fulltime illustrator, mostly of children s books. She has solid experience in illustration for publishing, advertising and commercial clients.

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Simone Payment's Roe v. Wade.

Gr. 5-7. Despite a somewhat misleading series title, Supreme Court Cases through Primary Sources, these useful resources have plenty to offer. Each combines a selection of pictures and photographed documents with a concise but unusually specific account of a major, contemporary Supreme Court case's full-course and core arguments, from inception to final decision. Readers will get a good sense of how the U.S. judicial system generally works, and at least a taste of how legal-style logic has been applied to clarify or redefine Constitutional principles. The authors also present opposing legal, moral, and ethical positions (but shy away from religious ones), and they close with brief reviews of public reactions to each decision. Aside from scattered quotations in the text, the illustrations constitute the only "primary sources" here, but these studies are more likely to engage readers in legal issues and process than the more detailed but drier corresponding volumes in Enslow's Landmark Supreme Court Cases series. Several helpful lists of further resources are appended. John Peters

Book Description Rosen Publishing Group, United States, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nancy Cruzan became a public figure after a 1983 auto accident left her permanently unconscious and without any higher brain function. Kept alive only by a feeding tube and steady medical care, Cruzan s family waged a legal battle to have her feeding tube removed, taking the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court ruled that the Cruzans had not provided clear and convincing evidence that Nancy Cruzan did not wish to have her life artificially preserved. The Cruzans later presented such evidence to the Missouri courts, which ruled in their favor in late 1990. Seller Inventory # FLT9780823940141
