Re: Citations on the Sexual Revolution
Here are several recent books that should fit the bill:
David Allyn, _Make Love, Not War: The Sexual Revolution: An
Unfettered History_. (Boston, etc.: Little, Brown, 2000).
Beth Bailey, _Sex in the Heartland_. (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard
University Press, 1999).
Naomi Wolf, _Promiscuities: The Secret Struggle for Womanhood_.
(New York: Random House, 1997).
John Heidenry, _What Wild Ecstasy: The Rise and Fall of the
Sexual Revolution_. (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1997).
Linda Grant, _Sexing the Millennium: Women and the Sexual
Revolution_. (New York: Grove Press, 1994).
Lillian B. Rubin, _Erotic Wars: What Happened to the Sexual
Revolution_. (New York: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 1990).
Sheila Jeffreys, _Anticlimax: A Feminist Perspective on the
Sexual Revolution_. (New York: New York University Press, 1990).
Hope these help,

Sixties List Members: I have taught a course on the 1960s at
State University called "The Sixties: Counterculture and Protest"
more than six years. The one area I have trouble finding good
(either primary or secondary) is the sexual revolution. By
revolution I don't just mean hippies but the change in mores in
from miniskirts and Playboy to Masters and Johnson and the
disco scene. I have used selections from Stephanie Coontz's book
Way We Never Were" with some success but am stumped for other
suitable for undergraduates in a general education class. I am
wondering if there is a broader interpretive work I can use to
conceptualize the sexual revolution.
Does anyone out there have suggestions?
