"Winter has chosen 500 books, articles, and audiovisuals for this highly selective bibliography that emphasizes psychological and social aspects of elective abortion, although clinical technologies are also included. Items are chosen because they are classics in the field or represent specific points of view. . . . Because of its balance and guidance regarding emotional attitudes, and since no substantial annotated bibliographies devoted to abortion have appeared in recent years, the bibliography will be valuable to general readers and undergraduates."

Editorial Reviews

?The bibliography has 500 classic or representational books and articles on the psychological and medical aspects of abortion. Some audiovisual materials have also been included. The articles chosen are in English, although some are translations into English, and tend to be from health-science journals. The preface includes a two-page review of the literature, and the introduction provides definitions of the 10 major subject divisions of the bibliography, which include 'Abortion Clinics, ' 'Abortion Decision, ' 'Abortion Techniques', 'Counseling, ' 'Morbidity and Mortality, ' 'Abortion Effects on Subsequent Pregnancy, ' 'Psychological Effects, ' and 'Psychosocial Aspects'. Each entry is numbered, and where a book has a bibliography it is noted. Brief descriptive annotations for each item are provided by the compiler, a librarian at California State University, Bakersfield.?-Reference Books Bulletin
