Description

Given the political fallout from the Supreme Court's decision in Missouri v. Webster and the Court's pending decisions in three more abortion cases, abortion rights promise to occupy centre stage in American politics for years to come. Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, this timely work analyses the development of the pro-choice movement over the last twenty-five years, providing crucial background to the current abortion rights debate.show more

Review quote

"A meticulously researched examplar of historical sociology."--American Journal of Sociology"The Pro-Choice Movement provides the most richly detailed and nuanced narrative of the strategies and tactics of prochoice organizations available. It is also one of the first works written by a scholar (rather than an activist, journalist, or freelance writer) chronciling activities of the prochoice movement."--American Political Science Review"A much-needed addition to the abortion politics literature....Ought to be read by students of women's politics, abortion politics, interest groups, and social movements."--American Politics"Extremely valuable for students of social change movements....A significant study."--Journal of American History"Highly recommended for college, university, and public libraries."--Choiceshow more
