Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On profound questions of birth, death, and human choice that are raised by abortion--where opposing sides see no common ground--how can the conflict be managed? The abortion debate in the United States today involves all Americans in complex questions of sex and power, historical change, politics, advances in medicine, and competing social values. In this best-selling book, an eminent constitutional authority shows how the nation has struggled with these questions and then sets forth new approaches that reflect both sides' passionately held convictions. The paperback edition includes discussion of the latest court decisions and excerpts from the major cases, including the Supreme Court's landmark June 1992 decision in .

Book News Annotation:

An updated paper edition of Tribe's (constitutional law, Harvard U.) 1990 contribution to the abortion debate, in which he surveys the deeply held views of the contending parties, and suggests new approaches to resolving the issue.
