Editorial Reviews

Commonweal

This book should change the way abortion and divorce are discussed in the United States.
— Daniel A. Degnan

New York Times Book Review

Ms. Glendon is an intelligent and humane scholar, and her argument is mounted with admirable incisiveness.
— Paul Robinson

Commentary

[An] extraordinary study...The courageous goal of Mary Ann Glendon's book is precisely to try to resurrect the idea of law as educational...[Ours is] a nation bitterly engaged in a fight over abortion and over a divorce law that imposes hardship on the very parties that looked to it as an engine of liberty. Abortion and Divorce in Western Law, a serious and compassionate book, shows us that another way is both possible and eminently sensible.
— Daniel Casse

Andrew M. Greeley
Brilliant...[Glendon's] application of Clifford Geertz's notion that law is a 'culture system,' a 'story' by which society interprets itself is nothing short of dazzling. The 'story' Professor Glendon tells is a chilling one: society stumbles unintentionally towards atomization and nihilism.
