Product Description

Review

“[Warner] displays the broad sweep of the historian and the analytical eye of the political scientist in this tidy little volume. . . . The story of abstinence is the story of some of the most colourful figures in U.S. history.”
Globe and Mail

“A fine social history.”
Maclean’s

“Exemplary . . . recommended reading for anyone who wants to understand North American culture today — the war on drugs, the increase in teetotalism and a teen virginity movement that is displacing safe-sex programs.”
National Post
