Abortion has long been a hot-button issue. In 1973, in the landmark case of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court finally decided that women should be allowed to have an abortion, with some limits. This book gives the background on the case and the path the case took to make it to the Supreme Court and presents both the majority and dissenting opinions related to the case. It also takes a look at the lasting impact the case has continued to have on policies and the legal system. Also included are questions to consider, primary source documents, and a chronology of the case.

Für Pete Dizinoff läuft alles prima. Er hat eine erfolgreiche Praxis, eine liebevolle Frau und ein hübsches Haus in einem gediegenen Vorort. Vor allem hat Pete einen Sohn, Alec, für den er nur das Beste will. Aber eines Tages und nach langer Abwesenheit taucht Laura wieder auf, die Tochter von Petes bestem Freund. Sie ist zehn Jahre älter als Alec, unwiderstehlich schön und steht in dem Verdacht, als Teenager ihr Baby bei der heimlichen Geburt getötet zu haben. Alec ist sofort von Laura hingerissen, Pete hingegen sieht seine Träume für den Sohn zerplatzen. In dem festen Glauben, nur in Alecs Sinne zu handeln, versucht er, die Beziehung seines Sohnes zu hintertreiben. Doch es sieht so aus, als ob er selber ein Auge auf Laura geworfen hätte. Und alles gerät außer Kontrolle ...

The New Jim Crow

Masseninhaftierung und Rassismus in den USA

Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.
