Science in the bedroom : a history of sex research by Vern L Bullough( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the first serious sex research study ever undertaken (in France with a group of Prostitutes in 1830) to the work of Masters and Johnson in our own day, sex research has been a field mired in controversy. Science in the Bedroom shows how, for most of its history and in whatever country it has been undertaken, sex research has been driven by forces outside itself. Among those forces have been groups marginalized as deviant, including homosexuals, free-love advocates, and feminists; courts and governments in search of independent data to support public morality standards; the desires of women for safe and effective contraceptive devices freely disseminated; the desire of doctors to medicalize all sex research and to view only the research that produces treatment therapies as valuable; and the fears of public funding institutes that their images will be sullied if they support independent sex research. The book traces how this moral overtone led the Rockefeller family to support sex research and how their money led to basic scientific breakthroughs in the l92Os and 1930s, culminating in the Kinsey studies. The backlash was so great, however, that the Rockefeller foundation dropped its sex studies. Based on archival sources and extensive personal interviews, Science in the Bedroom celebrates the lives and work of the major figures who risked their academic reputations to work in a stigmatized field. Vern L. Bullough emphasizes the difficulty of researching sex, since it involves not only biology but psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, literature, and a variety of professions, including medicine, religion, law, nursing, and social work. Containing fascinating new material on the efforts of a group of turn-of-the-century German homosexuals to decriminalize homosexuality, and on such important but largely forgotten female sex researchers as Katherine Bement Davis and Clelia Mosher, the book credits courageous homosexuals and feminists for much of the best early work

Poverty, ethnic identity, and health care by Bonnie Bullough( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tries to present the health care problems of the major ethnic minority groups in perspective. Although poverty is probably the most crucial variable in the genesis of these problems, there are still many subtle and not so subtle forms of discrimination operating in the health field. Unfortunately, discrimination in other aspects of American life also has consequences for health and in turn poor health helps to perpetuate the cycle of alienation and poverty. It is emphasized that there are no simple solutions, but that the problems come together into a kind of Gordian knot. There are however, rational and possible steps to take to cut that knot, including: (1) eliminating poverty, (2) effectively enforcing the laws against discrimination, and (3) revising our health care delivery system to provide total coverage for all of the people. The nine chapters of this book focus on the following topics: (1) the health care delivery problem; (2) immigrant minority groups; (3) black Americans; (4) the Spanish-speaking minority groups; (5) the Native Americans; (6) how poverty and hunger transcend racial lines; (7) mental health and mental illness; (8) discrimination and segregation; and, (9) improving health care delivery.
