Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Mortensen...uses drawings of the human figure as a means to assess the psychological and intellectual development of children...relating the different aspects of figure drawing to different theoretical frames of reference, which include developmental psychology as well as the Kleinian theory of psychosexual development."

British Journal of Psychiatry

This work details sex differences in children's drawings and shows how they display a coherent and meaningful pattern, indicative of a fundamental and basic psychosexual identity and not merely of socialization and education. Mortenson also reveals how human figure drawings reflect the drawer's visual impression of others, and the subjective experience of being human.

Synopsis:

Revised and updated to include the latest Supreme Court decisions, this classic text, now in its tenth edition, provides a concise overview of the judiciary in general and the Supreme Court in particular. The only book available that combines theory and practice of the judicial process with civil rights and liberties, The Judiciary acquaints students with the intricacies of our courts, the people who compose them, and their relationship to other branches of government, as well as to individuals and groups.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 279-283) and indexes.
