The Sexual Counterrevolution in America

Email a Friend

Nancy Cohen charts the birth of the sexual counterrevolution: how conflicts about sex, women’s rights and women’s roles, gay civil rights, and family values, have polarized national politics and unhinged the nation. In Delirium, she explores the reaction against the sexual revolution and the progressive movements that emerged from it—notably feminism and gay rights—and examines how it’s shaping the 2012 election season.
