2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robin Orlowski on August 3, 2003
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The rapid current pace of state politics and interrelated developments (for every action there remains an opposite reaction) would initially make inclusion of this particular work in reproductive policy cannons both inconsequential and redundant upon initial evaluation by a harried reader, even if they themselves are students of this particular policy area.
Because there is no shortage of other texts to delve into and analyze over an exotic cup of cappuccino, a reader's initial conclusion might be to simply consign this comparatively early individual work to the ever-growing list of past works (by implication previously but not currently helpful with anything) and skip over it entirely in exclusive focus on newer research which theoretically addresses today's policy environments more accurately. Decidedly not uncommon, activating and following this binary would be a profound injustice for both the individual reader and the larger society.
Since the 1973 Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade completely legalized abortion in the first three months of pregnancy, abortion has been a perpetual favorite of all political viewpoints who clamor for their representation at the state and federal levels. This same climate however means several 'current event' research compilations on state politics (as opposed to historical perspectives) run the risk of themselves appearing dangerously outdated only a few years after publication precisely because of the rapid pace of legislative history in 21st century politics. Even by the time the book has been printed, the issues (barring the truly unique circumstances) have been debated and votes cast, leaving opponents the recourse of passing counteracting legislation or attempting various legal maneuvers to reverse the policy effects.
