What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Delving into issues rarely examined by historians, Carolyn Lewis argues that physicians helped construct the criteria by which healthy heterosexuality was defined and understood in the Cold War era. She brings a keen analytic eye to this fascinating, well-written, and illuminating study.—Elaine Tyler May, author of America and the Pill: A History of Promise, Peril, and Liberation
