Elder Law in Maryland
By Jason Frank
More than most areas of the law, elder law tends to be state specific. In Maryland, long-term medical care regulations, health care decision making, and guardianship are just a few of the areas in which state law cannot be subsumed in general statements of majority rules or hornbook law. Yet, at the same time, uniform federal law governs Social Security issues and various consumer protection statutes and housing assistance programs. Elder Law in Maryland provides guidance to both applicable federal law and the unique aspects of Maryland elder law.
Selected Issues In American Education
By Samuel E. Beckles
Exhaustively researched and presented in a lucid, intelligent fashion, Selected Issues in American Education, by Samuel E. Beckles, examines six topics of importance in modern education. In 'Staff Development in Community Colleges' Mr. Beckles confronts the most crucial area of concern for the community based and funded institution of higher learning, a sector of the education field whose enrollment has increased 300 percent in the past decade. Often overlooked in these days of budgetary restriction and fiscal crisis, Mr. Beckles asserts that staff development is the key factor in the continued success of the community college. Turning to another area of educational concern in 'Existential Phenomenological Considerations for Counselors of College Students,' Mr. Beckles examines the heretofore unmet counseling needs of the modern collegian. Drawing on the works of an impressive array of philosophers and psychologists, including Frankl, Fingarette, Kierkegaard, and Sartre, the author formulates methods and means by which the frequent confusion and depression of college students can be eased through techniques adopted from the existentialist philosophy. Mr. Beckles addresses pressing and controversial subject with intelligence and sensitivity. Selected Issues in American Education is a tour de force by Beckles and a landmark in educational research and criticism.
