Roe v. Wade


Product Description
Product Details


Much more than a compact account of the Supreme Court's basic abortion decisions, Hull and Hoffer's work ranges widely to locate the constitutional and political controversies over abortion in the context of social movements and women's history. An astute and balanced guide to a much-debated subject.--Mark V. Tushnet, author of Abortion: Constitutional IssuesHull and Hoffer move from big-picture issues to key case details without ever losing sight of the very human side of American law and politics. Their book is a wonderful resource for students of all ages looking for basic information and important insights into one of the truly landmark law cases in our nation's history.--Sarah Weddington, author of A Question of Choice
The authors take an evenhanded approach to abortion without advocating a policy position or preaching the moral implications of either side. Thus it is well suited for the classroom as it allows the instructor to facilitate a debate on abortion without alienating large segments of students.--Law and Politics Book ReviewA page-turner that is also very scholarly, this remarkable book should be popular with lay readers and law scholars alike.--Publishers WeeklyWhile there are hundreds of books on various aspects of abortion in society, this one does an unusually good job of covering the full legal history from Colonial times to the present. Very readable and highly recommended.--Library JournalSkillfully marshals an impressive amount of material from social history, legal history, and politics.--Washington Post Book World
