Briefly noted: the season's highlights from scholarly publishers; Equal rights, the Male, Stake, by Leo Kanowitz. Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press. 197 pp. $19.95 in hardcover, $9.95 in paperback.

The Equal Rights Amendment could liberate men as well as women, the author argues persuasively here. It is hard to understand why two-thirds of the book is made up of the author's previously published and now outdated law-journal articles. Yet, at its best, this book lucidly explains how the courts have gradually struck down sex-based benign discrimination, what remains to be done, and why the women's movement is in part to blame for the failure of ERA.
