BeschreibungA provocative history of two-and-a-half centuries of battles over pregnancy and its consequences, explores the many forces--social, racial, economic, and political--that have shaped women's reproductive lives in the United States.
PortraitRickie Solinger is an independent historian who lives in the Hudson Valley. Her books include Wake Up Little Susie: Single Pregnancy and Race Before Roe v. Wade, The Abortionist: A Woman Against the Law, and Beggars and Choosers: How the Politics of Choice Shapes Adoption, Abortion, and Welfare in the United States.
Pressestimmen"An extraordinary accomplishment. In a courageous exploration of American history, Solinger demonstrates how public supervision of sex and social reproduction have served to maintain racial privilege." - Alice Kessler-Harris, author of in Pursuit of Equity: Women, Men, and the Quest for Economic Citizenship in Twentieth-Century America "Pregnancy and Power definitively demolishes the myth that reproductive politics has ever been about women's choice. Rickie Solinger's brilliant and comprehensive analysis shows that, throughout U.S. history, reproductive regulation has served a social agenda that especially disadvantages women of color." - Dorothy Roberts, author of Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty"
