What People are Saying About This

Daniels's detailed discussion of cases involving fetal protection versus maternal rights will engage law, and public policy…The book is approachable, written in ordinary English obfuscation and much of the folderol to which we are often treated these days…Daniels's text may prove to be a standard reference work for scholars in years to come.

Isabel Marcus

By virtue of its subject matter and analysis, I think it is fair to say that Daniels's book is one many of us have been waiting for and hoping would be published to meet our intellectual interests and pedagogical needs…Her detailed, thought--provoking analysis and synthesis will be important for serious, sober re-evaluation by social theorists and critics of all stripes (not only feminists) concerned with public policy in the next century.
