Summary
How the deeply divisive abortion controversy has played out on state and national levels during the past two decades provides an illustrative portrait, even if in some ways a disappointing reflection, of the operation of American government and politics. In Abortion and American Politics, Barbara H. Craig and David M. O'Brien tell the story of this explosive social issue, from the Supreme Court's landmark 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade, through the years of grass-roots activism and public debate that led to the de-turning 1989 decision in Webster v. Reproductive Health Services and to the no less controversial 1992 ruling in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey. Against the background of ambiguities of public opinion polls, the authors trace the strategic maneuvering of interest groups in bringing litigation and in pushing for legislation and executive action. And they underscore the prospects for further changes in the national debate over abortion with the Clinton administration's policies and its judicial appointees. Without attempting to resolve the abortion controversy or to advocate one or another position, Craig and O'Brien present a comprehensive analysis of the complex interaction of interest groups, the states, the courts, Congress, and the president and the executive branch. As a case study of institutional conflict over public policy, Abortion and American Politics demonstrates the enduring vitality of the Founders' vision of a system of constitutional politics that allows for incremental change as a means to ensure stability in the face of unyielding social controversy.

Summary
Why has postwar Japanese abortion policy been relatively progressive, while contraception policy has been relatively conservative? The Japanese government legalized abortion in 1948 but did not approve the pill until 1999. In this carefully researched study, Tiana Norgren argues that these contradictory policies flowed from very different historical circumstances and interest group configurations. Doctors and family planners used a small window of opportunity during the Occupation to legalize abortion, and afterwards, doctors and women battled religious groups to uphold the law. The pill, on the other hand, first appeared at an inauspicious moment in history. Until circumstances began to change in the mid-1980s, the pharmaceutical industry was the pill's lone champion: doctors, midwives, family planners, and women all opposed the pill as a potential threat to their livelihoods, abortion rights, and women's health. Clearly written and interwoven with often surprising facts about Japanese history and politics, Norgren's book fills vital gaps in the cross-national literature on the politics of reproduction, a subject that has received more attention in the European and American contexts. Abortion Before Birth Control will be a valuable resource for those interested in abortion and contraception policies, gender studies, modern Japanese history, political science, and public policy.

Summary
With the prospect that Roe v. Wade may soon be overturned, the war in our society over reproductive rights is gaining new momentum, and both sides are preparing for the legislative battles that will follow. Now, in Abortion Politics, Michele McKeegan provides a lively and dramatic account of how abortion first became a political issue, beginning in the early 1970s when a disaffected group of young Republican party strategists--including Howard Phillips, Paul Weyrich, Richard Viguerie, and Pat Buchanan--had the idea of trying to forge a new conservative coalition out of previously disparate single-issue constituencies. By issuing "hit lists" of "anti-family" legislators and throwing their resources behind conservative challengers, the proponents of this strategy scored numerous successes in the mid to late 70s, galvanizing fundamentalist Protestants into first-time political involvement and pulling anti-abortion Catholics out of the Democratic party and into alignment with the traditional right. The movement's tireless grassroots organizing and fundraising appeals brought a surge of new voters into the Republican camp, wrested control of the platform committee from the party's moderate wing, and swept Ronald Reagan into office in a landslide 1980 victory. President Reagan made numerous appointments from the ranks of the New Right, and while he declined to press such favorite conservative causes as the Human Life Amendment sponsored by Senator Helms, he quietly authorized his executive appointees to initiate a campaign of bureaucratic harassment and obstruction against the family planning establishment. McKeegan artfully reconstructs this largely unreported campaign, which was conducted with flamboyant zeal by executive agencies such as Health and Human Services, the Combined Federal Campaign Commission, and the Office of Personnel Management. But soon the zealots overreached themselves, in some cases evoking congressional sanctions; alert observers began to detect signs of strain in the conservative coalition. With Reagan's departure from office these strains developed into cracks, as Republican moderates concerned about the party's future--particularly its appeal to younger voters--increasingly sought to marginalize the New Right, and finally broke into open war with the 1992 presidential candidacy of Pat Buchanan, who threatened to lead the New Right out of the party altogether. McKeegan's absorbing account of this bitter struggle for the soul of the Republican party vividly illustrates the perils of a coalition strategy that seeks to mix religious passions into democratic politics.
