"Ten weeks after going through thirty-six rounds of radiation and four rounds of intensive, chemotherapy treatments, our author Susan Long Dineen's eighteen-year-old son left for college. Having been with him during ninety-six doctor's appointments and brief hospitalization stays, she questioned whether his immune system could withstand the rigors of college life.
Kevin headed for an environment with carefree college students who were in much different places. Susan was not the least bit prepared for what unfolded after he departed for college. The story documents her personal journey and seeks to encourage others who may face a similar challenge as a parent of a teenager living through a traumatic experience like cancer. In addition to Susan's story, Kevin shares his thoughts that provide insights from the mind of a teenager facing his greatest life challenge.
"Cancer never affects just the individual with the diagnosis. It also involves family and friends. This true life story of a young man's struggle to survive is told from his Mom's perspective. Susan draws us in to share the anguish of patient and family, as well as healing on many levels."
--Dr. Louis Schroder, MD; Kevin's oncologist
"Parents of adolescent, teenage, and young-adult children, dealing with cancer issues, will have more perspective after reading Finding a Way Out. Susan's experiences with her son helped us with our son's own cancer journey."
--Bill and Gindy Schneller
As the process of internationalization accelerates, comparative law scholars inevitably focus on the adaptation of legal cultures to new realities. It is particularly important, in the global world order as it stands today, to understand (as best we can) the 'inner workings' of two groups of lawyers: those in the United States, and those in the major European countries. In which ways do the two groups understand each other, and where do they go their separate ways? And what are the implications for the legal profession and its beneficiaries of their cultural and ideological differences?At a symposium held in Paris twelve scholars from Europe and the United States met to investigate and clarify these issues under two intimately related rubrics: realities and trends on the one hand, and ethics, rules and professional ideologies on the other. The participants have updated their original papers for this publication. In the course of their discussion they reveal which cultural realities persist and are likely to remain, and which trends are broadening the common ground on which lawyers act in both cultures. The result is the sharpest delineation we have yet of this vital concern of current comparative law.
