When Sex Changed: Birth Control and Literature Between the World Wars
By Layne Parish Craig, Instructor of English
Rutgers University Press
Craig’s book analyzes the birth control movements during the 1910s and 1930s in the U.S. and Great Britain. The nonfiction work traces the shift in how various writers responded to the political, economic, sexual and social values in that era. Craig argues that the political and literary texts that emerged during that time period helped shape the complexities of family planning and women’s rights.
