Hunter, J.D. (1994). Before the Shooting Begins: Searching for Democracy in America’s Culture War

. New York & Toronto: The Free Press of Macmillan.  The author of Culture Wars: The Struggle to Define America (Basic Books, 1991) emphasizes he is not talking merely about conflicts of public opinion, but about "competing moral visions" that shape society and its institutions. He attempts to take us beyond the fire of activism and the barrages of dogmatic critics to real discussion about the moral foundation of pluralistic, urban society. "If the culture war is really a war over first principles of how we will order our lives together, then the only just and democratic way beyond the culture war is through it—by facing up to the hard, tedious, perplexing, messy, and seemingly endless task of working through what kind of people we are and what kind of communities we will live in...(The abortion controversy) not only mirrors the culture war as a whole, it has been a centerpiece of our postmodern politics (the politics of the body) for many years. Abortion remains the knottiest moral and political dilemma of the larger culture war, contested now for more than two decades with little hope of a satisfying resolution...we may discover that the question is not about women versus unborn children, but about what kind of society is it that creates this kind of forced selection to begin with."
