A Personal Account of a Struggle to Be Evenhanded in Teaching About Abortion, in Advocacy in the Classroom: Problems and Possibilities (Patricia Meyer Spacks ed., 1996)
Samuel W. Calhoun
In this collection of essays that originated at a conference sponsored by a group of national academic organizations, the issue of pedagogical advocacy, as well as authority in the classroom, is addressed from a wide range of opinion and practice by 42 graduate and undergraduate professors (and one secondary school teacher). Because the issue involves questions of academic freedom, political correctness and cultural diversity, there are fundamental disagreements as well as large areas of convergence among the contributors here. Viewpoints range from Gertrude Himmelfarb's wariness about postmodernism and its "denial that there is any such thing as knowledge, truth, reason, or objectivity" to Louis Menand's arguing for pedagogical passion that "must always characterize the good teacher." This well-organized, provocatively diverse collection should promote dialogue and discussion among academics.

Resolving Libel Disputes Out of Court: The Libel Dispute Resolution Program, in Reforming Libel Law (John Soloski & Randall P. Bezanson eds., 1992)
Brian C. Murchison
Current libel law in the U.S. has proven problematic for plaintiffs and media alike. From the plaintiff's perspective, the law seems frustrating and unfair, providing little opportunity to repair reputations; from the media standpoint, the high cost of litigation threatens to deter journalistic pursuit of controversial stories. Over the last decade, these problems have led legal scholars to propose comprehensive reforms. Some of these proposals have been available to the limited readership of law reviews, while others were published only in abbreviated form-- have been the subject of heated debate. Presenting the most significant of these proposals complete and under one cover this volume makes the issues and controversies surrounding libel law reform accessible to a wide readership for the first time.
