Book announcements

From Randi Epstein:

First of all, I love this list, I’ve connected with such interesting women. I’m writing because my book Get Me Out: A History of Childbirth from the Garden of Eden to the Sperm Bank (Norton: 2010) was just released in paperback this January. I like to think of the book as a cultural history of medicine, or rather a history of women’s health through the prism of childbirth. My publisher is happy to send review copies to professors who may be interested in the book for potential inclusion on a syllabus.

From Lesley Hall:

WHOM members may be interested in my new book, _The Life and Times of Stella Browne: Feminist and Free Spirit_, which has just been published by IB Tauris in the UK and will be out in the USA next month via Macmillan.

As well as being a significant figure in the early C20th British struggle for women’s reproductive rights, she had important connections with the US movement and with birth control and sex reform campaigners in continental Europe.
