Very classroom friendly, and would be a welcome addition to specialized courses on the American Progressive Movement of the History of Sexuality in the United States, as well as general courses in American social and cultural history or the medical humanities.-- "AMERIKASTUDIEN"
[A] nuanced and inclusive account.... The result is compelling insight into aspects of American sexual history that have until now gone without substantial analysis.-- "SOCIAL HISTORY OF MEDICINE"
Shah's telling of their story is ultimately well written and interesting, making this book a useful introduction for those familiarizing themselves with America's contentious sex education debates.-- "BULLETIN OF THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE"
Shah's compact volume is well written and is ideally suited for undergraduates seeking a broad synthesis of the role race, gender, and class played not only in the development of sex education but also in the Progressive Era more generally.-- "H-NET"
[Shah] exposes ways that whiteness denoted purity and middle-class respectability, excluding racial minorities, the working class, and poor, rural, and Southern populations from many reform efforts. Recommended.-- "CHOICE"
