“Unlike many popular biographies that simply try to re-create events, this book is an objective scholarly anthology of documents, reports, and opinion pieces highlighting the complexities of an emotional case.”
- Library Journal
“The Schiavo case constituted the perfect storm of medical, legal, moral, and constitutional disputes. In this anthology the editors have gathered a veritable treasure house of primary sources – from medical records and court documents to papal statements – to assist the reader in understanding the controversies and assess the issues.
“The Case of Terri Schiavo will prove to be an invaluable resource for anyone teaching courses in law, medicine, and bioethics. Nowhere else will they find such a complete source of primary documents on the full range of issues that marked the Schiavo controversy.
“This anthology is truly an outstanding collection of sources that would otherwise be unavailable except to the most resourceful scholar.”
