From the Inside Flap

“Compellingly attentive to medical and legal structures, but also to dramatic human choices, Dangerous Pregnancies provides a boldly argued and carefully documented historical grounding for critical debates in public policy and women’s rights.”—David Roediger, author of How Race Survived U.S. History

"Both a gripping story of the activism of middle-class mothers and an insightful study of abortion law reform, Dangerous Pregnancies is a compelling argument about reproductive rights, immunization, and the public health power of the state. A terrific book."—Molly Ladd-Taylor, author of "Bad" Mothers: The Politics of Blame in Twentieth-Century America and Mother-Work: Women, Child Welfare, and the State, 1890-1930.

"Accessible and clearly written, Reagan's illuminating account of German measles is immensely valuable both in itself and as a window into larger issues of gender, public health, and bioethics."—Charles Rosenberg, author of The Cholera Years and No Other Gods: On Science and American Social Thought

Very important history done in a very academic manner... June 28 2013
By Chris Haynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well this editorial review makes it known: ""Intellectual."--Journal of American History"

Yup, it is that all right.

This is an academic history/medical book that only the dedicated layman would appreciate. You need to read it in small doses, otherwise it is a snore fest. Which is why I sent it off to a epidemiologist friend, he would like it just like all of his other graduate level text books.

I only say that because I had to buy Advanced Engineering Mathematics from Amazon for a graduate level class, and I actually enjoy much of that math. But I realize that is not normal.
