Summary
"Around 1800 birth rates reached historical heights. Using a combination of demographic and qualitative sources, Dr. Cook examines the connection between the struggle to lower fertility and the increasing repression of sexuality throughout the nineteenth century. Contraception became a viable option in the early twentieth century. The book charts the resulting slow relaxation of attitudes to sexuality and the remaking of heterosexual physical behaviour, culminating in the sexual revolution of the 1960s."--Jacket
