Encyclopedia of American Civil Liberties & Rights 3 vols

Wydawca: Greenwood Publishing Group
Rok wydania: 2006
Stron: 1448
ISBN: 9780313327582

Opis:

Spanning three volumes, this comprehensive encyclopedia of over six hundred entries covers the full range of civil rights and liberties in America from the antecedents of the Bill of Rights through the most recent controversies over political and social issues, including abortion, free speech, religious liberty, voting rights, and the guarantees of equality. It also addresses the civil rights and liberties issues stemming from America`s ongoing war on terrorism. Detailed entries include key concepts, historical events and developments, major trials and appellate court decisions, landmark legislation, legal doctrines, important personalities, and key organizations and agencies. Entries have an objective tone, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. Designed as an up-to-date reference source for students, scholars, and citizens, the encyclopedia will help broaden and heighten understanding and appreciation for the wide range of issues associated with civil rights and liberties in the United States, and is the most sophisticated treatment available. The volumes of the encyclopedia consist of original entries, arranged alphabetically, on many current hot-button issues as well as in-depth coverage of the rights Americans hold sacred. Written by experts in the field, including attorneys, judges, and legal scholars, the encyclopedia takes a historical-legal approach, providing important information on the background and development of an issue or event. The third volume concludes with over three dozen essential primary documents, including landmark statutes, key court decisions, and influential essays. "[T]he editors of this new encyclopedia correctly assert that theirs is the only source that equally treats rights (relating to the democratic commitment to equality) and liberties (debates between individual freedom and governmental power). Their expertise in history, politics, and law is evident. With over 600 entries, the set is unusually comprehensive, including important people and organizations; laws and court cases; legal concepts; and hot topics. It goes beyond the typical issues associated with certain groups (such as women and abortion) to discuss concerns like living wills, the right of asylum, and surrogate motherhood. This new encyclopedia is also particularly handy. Along with the expected bibliography and index, it includes a list of entries, a reader`s guide to related topics, an alphabetized list of relevant cases (including legal citations), and the full text of almost 40 primary documents. Many may wish this work had arrived before the others. It is a very worthy candidate for libraries wanting a fresh core resource. Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through graduate students; general readers." - Choice "Key issues relevant to civil rights and liberties in the United States are presented in approximately 600 signed, alphabetically arranged essays of varying length. They include both historical background and current concerns-political and social-presented by experts whose credentials are listed. Topics include controversial issues such as doctor-assisted suicide, abortion rights, antismoking legislation, and the USA Patriot Act, and are covered in a clearly written, easily understood, and unbiased manner. Historical entries address such subjects as the development of the Bill of Rights, the Alien and Sedition Acts, and the poll tax. Also considered are significant people such as Supreme Court justices, political activists, and advocates for civil rights, and key concepts, organizations, and legislation. Cross-references and a bibliography follow each essay...This up-to-date and comprehensive, yet compact resource will be a useful addition." - School Library Journal "American civil rights and liberties have a historical past and active presence in our society. This encyclopedia provides an overview of more than 600 topics in both the civil rights and liberties arenas...[p]rovides current coverage of both civil and liberties...[s]hould be considered for academic and public libraries." - Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin "From Abington School District v. Schempp (one of the Supreme Court`s school prayer decisions) to zoning, this three-volume encyclopedia 627 alphabetical entries on issues of civil rights, defined as those that arise from the democratic commitment to equality, and civil liberties, defined as related to the disputes pitting claims of individual freedom against assertions of governmental power, in American history. Editors Stephens, Scheb, and Stooksbury include coverage of important court decisions and legislation; important individuals, such as Rosa Parks and John Peter Zenger; governmental and non-governmental groups and organizations; controversial issues; and key legal and philosophical concepts and doctrines...In addition to the entries, over 100 pages of primary documents are presented in the third volume, along with a table of cases, a bibliography, and an index." - Reference & Research Book News
