From the Publisher"Shaping Abortion Discourse is an outstanding empirical study of media coverage of abortion politics in the United States and Germany." American Journal of Sociology
"How do societal contexts shape the way people talk about abortion? This theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich comparative study of abortion discourse in Germany and the US seeks to provide answers to this question.... If this were not enough, the authors also seek to assess the quality of discourse, and in so doing, explore larger issues that can be drawn about the public sphere in contemporary liberal democracies. This highly ambitious book deserves sustained attention and a wide readership. Highly recommended." "Choice cultural and political debate will benefit academics, political leaders, members of the clergy, and students of political science. Recommended." Choice
"Shaping Abortion Discourse is a fascinating study and a great intellectual inspiration for students who are looking into the role of the media in democracy."
