Description:

**** BCL3 cites the first edition (1981). A fine history and analysis of the state's role in a crucial and personal aspect of human behavior. Updated to cover the 80s. Printed in Hong Kong on acidic paper. Johnston tackles the history of family issues by focusing on the power that women have historically exerted. She traces how reproduction, sexuality, domesticity, and motherhood have been socially constructed and how feminists and anti-feminists have fought on the terrain of family issues.
