The Long Sexual Revolution: English Women, Sex, and Contraception, 1800-1975

Acknowledgements

One of the great pleasures of writing this book has been the many arguments and discussions I have had with colleagues who have read portions of it or listened to me at research seminars and conferences. I would like to express my gratitude to them for their contribution to the work. I am especially grateful to Pat Thane who supervised the doctorate with which this book began and to Marybeth Hamilton who has discussed the ideas and read drafts seemingly endlessly over the years. Both have provided me with constant support and intellectual stimulation. The staff of Birkbeck College, University of London, where I took my first degree were an inspiration to me at that time and have continued to support my research and offer me encouragement in many ways since then. I would like to thank Richard Evans, Joanna Bourke, David Feldman, and Dorothy Porter. The first year of the doctorate was spent at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where Margaret Thorogood and Klim McPherson kindly gave access to their files of epidemiological research on the pill. Although little of that material has found its way into the finished book, it has informed the research. At this time I met Diana Kuh, who gave me confidence in the use of statistics, and graciously obtained permission for me to use the Research Council's National Survey of Health and Development data. I would also like to thank the staff and the architect of the University of Sussex, who provided much needed breaks away from London's harder edges.

This work would not have been possible without the Economic and Social Research Council, which awarded me the doctoral fellowship with which the book began. Thanks must go to the Leverhulme Foundation, which awarded me a Studentship held at the University of Sydney, Australia, thus introducing a comparative dimension to my work. Charlotte MacDonald, the head of History, Victoria University, Wellington, offered me space and support as a Visiting Researcher for six weeks. Responses to the numerous research papers I have given over the years
