Forty years after the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision legalizing abortion, "Roe v. Wade" continues to make headlines. "After Roe: The Lost History of the Abortion Debate" cuts through the myths and misunderstandings to present a clear-eyed account of cultural and political responses to the landmark 1973 ruling in the decade that followed. The grassroots activists who shaped the discussion after "Roe," Mary Ziegler shows, were far more fluid and diverse than the partisans dominating t...

The public debate on abortion stretches back much further than Roe v. Wade, to long before the terms "pro-choice" and "pro-life" were ever invented. Yet the ways Americans discussed abortion in the early decades of the twentieth century had little in common with our now-entrenched debates about personal responsibility and individual autonomy. Abortion in the American Imagination returns to the moment when American writers first dared to broach the controversial subject of abortion. What was once...

It argues that the history of the movement, usually reconstructed as an elite scientific and political discourse, cannot be fully understood without also...
