Product description

Review

"Highly original, learned, and skillfully written. . . . A mine of fascinating and surprising information about every aspect of the history of family limitation in ancient, medieval, and Renaissance Europe."--Bernard Knox "New York Review of Books "

"A formidably learned, ingenious, at times eloquent investigation. Professor Boswell is a young historian of rare force and originality."--George Steiner "New Yorker "

"Bold, original and, very likely, controversial. . . . This is a pioneering work of large importance, the first to map out and explore a tangled, mysterious region of human experience."--Mary Martin McLaughlin "New York Times Book Review " --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
