Menus for Impulsive Living by Kurt Leland

This book should change the way abortion and divorce are discussed in the United States.|Brilliant...[Glendons] application of Clifford Geertzs notion that law is a culture system, a story by which society interprets itself is nothing short of dazzling. The story Professor Glendon tells is a chilling one: society stumbles unintentionally towards atomization and nihilism.|[An] extraordinary study...The courageous goal of Mary Ann Glendons book is precisely to try to resurrect the idea of law as educational...[Ours is] a nation bitterly engaged in a fight over abortion and over a divorce law that imposes hardship on the very parties that looked to it as an engine of liberty. Abortion and Divorce in Western Law, a serious and compassionate book, shows us that another way is both possible and eminently sensible.|Ms. Glendon is an intelligent and humane scholar, and her argument is mounted with admirable incisiveness.
