9780872209039: Abortion: The Supreme Court Decisions, 1965-2007

Updated to include the 2007 decision Gonzales v. Carhart, this volume provides all of the major Supreme Court decisions on abortion--as well as many majority, dissenting, and plurality opinions--carefully edited for use in undergraduate and graduate courses in a variety of disciplines.

In his introductory essay, Shapiro sets these cases in political, historical, and philosophical context, and gives the reader a sense of what the main issues in the constitutional law of abortion are likely to be in the future.

About the Author:

Ian Shapiro is Sterling Professor of Political Science at Yale University, where he also serves as Henry R. Luce Director of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies.

Review:

Abortion: The Supreme Court Decisions is the essential collection of abortion case decisions for students and scholars. With comprehensive coverage of both the foundational and the very latest cases, the volume guides the reader through the intricate channels of constituently reasoning around reproductive rights. Shapiro's new introduction maps the history and implications of abortion jurisprudence with welcome clarity. No library or personal collection of works on Supreme Court jurisprudence, reproductive rights, or the ethics of abortion policy will be complete without Shapiro's new edition. --Lisa Ellis, Texas A&M University



Dispute over whether abortion should never, sometimes, or always be legal remains at the center of American jurisprudence, politics, and morality. It shows no sign of dissolving into the negotiation and compromise of 'politics as usual.' Thus Ian Shapiro's Abortion is an invaluable book. The third edition provides not only the Supreme Court decisions but also an expanded Introduction by Shapiro. The Introduction does just what this vexed issue needs--laying out the history, law, partisanship, and philosophy of the abortion debate. Abortion is a wonderful resource for teaching and research, or simply for pondering this troubling and complex issue. --Jennifer L. Hochschild, Harvard University



This book provides an essential resource for understanding one of the most divisive issues in American politics. The collection of edited cases and dissents, together with Shapiro's lucid introduction, offers teachers and students alike an unsurpassed guide for understanding and debating the legal conflicts over abortion. --Margaret Weir, University of California at Berkeley
