Editorial Reviews

In this addition to the Library in a Book series, Kranz reviews the complicated ethical and legal issues provoked by reproductive technologies, which she defines broadly to include contraception, abortion, and fertility. A chronology of events provides readers with a time line of significant scientific discoveries and legal decisions, and a glossary defines terminology. Another chapter gives brief biographies of people involved with reproductive rights and applications, including politicians, lawyers, judges, doctors, activists, and ordinary people who were thrust into the public spotlight because of reproductive science, such as Baby M and Louise Brown. Kranz offers a balanced view of the topic, providing both pro-life and pro-choice perspectives, and her language is carefully chosen to avoid bias. Students might finish the book with more questions than answers, as Kranz always reminds readers of the numerous ethical problems presented by reproductive technologies. Kranz's research chapter includes tips, further information sources, an annotated bibliography of books and articles, and lists of pro-choice and pro-life organizations. In a section titled Research and the Internet, Kranz mentions the fee-based Westlaw and Lexis-Nexis databases, but she neglects to inform students that they can find these databases in public and academic libraries. Most students, however, will find the legal information provided in this volume sufficient. Because reproductive science changes quickly, this book undoubtedly was outdated before it was published, but Kranz thoroughly covers the topic from the 1670s through late 2001. Glossary. Index.

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Organization is one of the strong points of this resource containing 44 biographical essays. From Martha Washington to Laura Bush, each entry begins with important dates and a brief overview of the subject's life or impact while separate sections cover "Early Life," "Marriage and Family," "Presidency and First Ladyship," and "Legacy." These sections will allow for quick and easy access of facts and be useful for comparative studies. The engaging entries describe how each woman's personality shaped the role. Additionally, readers will learn how the issues of the period and changing expectations contributed to the evolution of this position. Boxed sidebars contain information about their husbands and anecdotes about each woman. An annotated list of suggested readings follows each article. Black-and-white photographs, drawings, and reproductions add interest. A valuable feature of this book is the inclusion of nine topical essays on aspects of the First Lady's role (as presidential partner, as campaigner, etc.), White House hostesses, and life in the White House. A list of the special interests of these individuals is included in the essay on "First Ladies and Policy Issues, Causes, or Charities." An extensive bibliography and a list of libraries, museums, historic sites, and Web sites are also provided. A useful tool for students researching these women.-Lana Miles, Duchesne Academy, Houston, TX RESOURCE UPDATE Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
Kranz draws on a background in history and literature to assemble sources for beginning research into current social issues. Here she provides an overview of reproductive rights and technology, a review of the relevant law, a chronology, biographical sketches, a glossary without pronunciation guides, and an annotated bibliography. Then she describes techniques for deeper research. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
