From the PublisherWendy Kaminer
The Boston Globe
Cynthia Gorney has written a gripping, comprehensive history of the abortion war that ought to become a classic.
Los Angeles Times
Stunning....Gorney is an exquisite storyteller...[she] makes us care more about the characters than their ideological inclinations. [You'll] find yourself rooting for someone whose position on abortion you'd ordinarily find abhorrent.
A startling empathy for both sides....Vivid detail and grand scope.
San Francisco Chronicle
Gripping narrative...jammed with provocative anecdotes and surprising insights....This beautifully written book uncovers the untidy realities and self-contradictory beliefs and fears lying beneath the rhetoric of absolute right and wrong.
San Jose Mercury News
An amply rewarding journey....Presents both sides of a complex issue and brings it alive through character, detail, context, and a narrative so compellingly written that at times it reads like a novel.
An enthralling, skillfully balanced narrative about this important and complicated national debate.
David J. Garrow
The New York Times
Articles of Faith illuminates the two distinct faces of the post-Roe drive against abortion, those of protestors and those of legislators. Gorney's portrait of Sam Lee is impressive.
Samuel G. Freedman
In Cynthia Gorney, this subject has at last found its ideal chronicler....Best nonfiction book of 1998. More than that, it is a book that deserves to last for its evenhanded and immensely readable quality....Gorney's reporting, while balanced, is anything but blandly "objective." She brings equal passion, vigor, and empathy to each character, making their battle of principles rage in a reader's brain.

Gorney can write with great power.

The book abounds in poignant detail.
