New out in paperback, from Stephanie Hepburn (a Times-Picayune contributor and graduate of American U. Law) [left] and sociologist Rita James Simon (Amer. U--Public Affairs), is Women's Roles and Statuses the World Over. Its description is that it "stands alone in the unique contribution it makes to the field of women's rights. Based solely on statistics and empirical data as opposed to opinion, authors Stephanie Hepburn and Rita Simon have crafted an important contribution to the study of women in society by comparing women's position in society within 26 nations throughout the world." It is part of a book series on global perspectives on social issues and related books coauthored by Simon on insanity defense, abortion, drug trafficking, immigration, and other issues "the world over."
