    Rutgers University Press 2008; US$ 26.95

  • Reforming Sexby Atina Grossmann

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 72.99

    Reforming Sex reconstructs the complicated history of a movement that has been romanticized as the harbinger of 1960s sexual radicalism and demonized as a precursor to Nazi racial policy, but mostly buried and obscured by Nazi bookburnings and repression. Relying on a broad range of sources--from police reports, films and personal interviews to sex... more...

  • Creation and Abortionby F. M. Kamm

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 64.99

    Based on a non-consequentialist ethical theory, this book critically examines the prevalent view that if a fetus has the moral standing of a person, it has a right to life and abortion is impermissible. Most discussion of abortion has assumed that this view is correct, and so has focused on the question of the personhood of the fetus. Kamm begins... more...

  • Breaking the Abortion Deadlockby Eileen McDonagh

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 59.99

    For over twenty years the abortion debate has raged, with each side entrenched in unyielding positions. This book breaks the impasse by using pro-life premises to reach pro-choice conclusions.

A prominent biologist, ecological philosopher, and keen student of human population... more...

  • Sacred Rightsby Daniel C. Maguire

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 37.99

    Many of the world's religions have a restrictive pro-natalist view on family planning. But as the essays in this volume demonstrate, this is not the only legitimate or orthodox view. Seeking to counteract the simplistic idea that all religions are antagonistic toward contraception and abortion, the authors--all members of the religions about which... more...

  • Abortionby Eva Pattis Zoja

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 43.95

    The debate on abortion has tended to avoid the psychological significance of an unwanted pregnancy, dominated istead by the strong emotions the subject excites. Eva Pattis Zoja examines the thoughts that surround a woman's decision to end a pregnancy, and presents the challenging thesis that voluntary abortion can often be a violent and unconscious... more...
