Abandoned Children of the Italian Renaissance

Nicholas Terpstra
In the early development of the modern Italian state, individual orphanages were a reflection of the intertwining of politics and charity. Nearly half of the children who lived in the cities of the late Italian Renaissance were under fifteen years of age. Grinding poverty, unstable families, and the death of a parent could make caring for these young children a burden. Many were abandoned, others orphaned. At a time when political rulers...

Abolition

Robert Badinter, translated by Jeremy Mercer, OtherKenneth Roth
Part legal drama, part political procedural, Abolition is above all a passionate argument against the death penalty and the rare story of politicians’ willingness to fight for their principles, even against the popular will.

Here, he recounts his efforts to publicly subvert the death penalty...

The Abolitionists and the South, 1831-1861

Stanley Harrold
Within the American antislavery movement, abolitionists were distinct from others in the movement in advocating, on the basis of moral principle, the immediate emancipation of slaves and equal rights for black people. Instead of focusing on the "immediatists" as products of northern culture, as many previous historians have done, Stanley Harrold examines their involvement with antislavery action in the South—particularly in the region that bordered the free states. How, he asks, did...

The Abortion Myth

Leslie Cannold, OtherRene Denfeld
A new voice urges feminism to evolve a richer, more nuanced understanding of abortion. The feminist position on abortion is little changed from thirty years ago, argues Leslie Cannold. Mired in the rhetoric of "rights," feminists have failed to appreciate women's actual experience of abortion and have ceded the debate on the morality of abortion to the anti-choice contingent. In order to counter the current erosion of abortion rights and appeal to...
