Motherhood in bondage by Margaret Sanger( Book )

24 editions published between 1928 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Margaret Sanger (1883-1966) was a leading figure in the American birth control movement. In Motherhood in Bondage, first published in 1928, Sanger reproduced letters written to her from women and sometimes men from all over the country, in both urban and rural areas, who were seeking advice on reproductive matters and marital relations, but mostly imploring her to help them find ways to avoid more pregnancies. The letters are grouped by theme into sixteen chapters, and Sanger wrote an introduction to each chapter. In her new foreword for this edition, Margaret Marsh describes the controversies surrounding these letters and places them in their historical context."--Jacket
The pivot of civilization by Margaret Sanger( Book )

36 editions published between 1922 and 2011 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1922 by pioneering birth control advocate Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), this controversial work attempted to broaden the still-radical idea of birth control beyond its socialist and feminist roots. Shifting the focus from women's reproductive rights to the larger issue of the general welfare of the whole human race, Sanger argues that birth control is pivotal to a rational approach toward dealing with the threat of overpopulation and its ruinous consequences in poverty and disease. However, in arguing for population control, Sanger makes frequent reference to the then fashionable "science" of eugenics. While critics on both the right and the left have sought to diminish Sanger's achievements, based on the context of her arguments, they can never obscure her powerful feminist message: when women gain greater control over their fertility they will improve the human race."--Jacket

Publisher's description: The birth control crusader, feminist, and reformer Margaret Sanger was one of the most controversial and compelling figures in the twentieth century. This first volume of The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger documents the critical phases and influences of an American feminist icon and offers rare glimpses into her working-class childhood, burgeoning feminism, spiritual and scientific interests, sexual explorations, and diverse roles as wife, mother, nurse, journalist, radical socialist, and activist. These letters and other writings, including diaries, journals, articles, and speeches, most of which have never before been published, have been selected and assembled with an eye to telling the story of a remarkable life, punctuated by arrests and imprisonments, exile, love affairs, and a momentous personal loss--a life consumed with the quest for women's sexual liberation. Because its narrative line is so absorbing, volume 1 may be read as a powerful biography. Volume 1 covers a twenty-eight-year period from nurse's training and early socialist involvement in pre- World War I bohemian Greenwich Village to Sanger's adoption of birth control (a term she helped coin in 1914) as a fundamental tenet of women's rights. It traces the intersection of her life and work with other reformers, activists and leaders of modernity on both sides of the Atlantic, including Havelock Ellis, H.G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Emma Goldman, Max Eastman, and Eugene Debs, as well as many leading radical artists and writers of the day. It highlights her legislative and organizational efforts, her support of the eugenics movement, and the alliances she secured with medical professionals in her crusade to make birth control legal, respectable, and accessible. This volume also includes letters from women desperately in need of fertility control who saw Sanger as their last hope. Supplemented by an introduction, brief essays providing narrative and chronological links, and substantial notes, the volume is an invaluable tool for understanding Sanger's actions and accomplishments. The documents assembled here, more than 80 percent of them letters, were culled from the Margaret Sanger Papers Microfilm Edition, edited by Esther Katz, Cathy Moran Hajo, and Peter C. Engelman. Two subsequent volumes will address later periods in her life, and an additional volume will cover her international work in the birth control struggle
