  1. Abortion (Third Edition)

    Edited, with Introduction, by Ian Shapiro

    Abortion (Third Edition)

    "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
