Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The first title in this series, May It Please the Court: The Most Significant Oral Arguments Made Before the Supreme Court Since 1955 (Audio Reviews, LJ 10/1/93), was published amid controversy since the tapes were, technically, bootlegged. Eventually, the Supreme Court accepted the public's right to hear history being made. The publisher is capitalizing on the popularity of the first set with this more narrowly focused anthology. Included are eight Supreme Court cases on abortion dating from 1965 to 1992, including the landmark Roe v. Wade (1973). The recordings are slightly edited, with added narrative by Sylvia Law, Nadine Strossen, and Eleanor Holmes Norton that provides contextual information. The quality of the recorded speeches is fairly good, and the accompanying paperback book contains the complete transcript. Recommended for women's studies collections and larger public libraries. Note: The set comes in a flimsy cardboard box with a StyrofoamTM insert for the cassettes, so libraries will have to be innovative in processing for circulation.-Nann Blaine Hilyard, Fargo P.L., N.D.
