    John Riddle documents how ordinary women collectively developed and used birth control from the ancient world to the renaissance His work reminds the reader that science and medicine have historically been a collective human endeavor, not an activity reserved for an elite class of professional doctors and scientists In this way, he recaptures ordinary women s roles as the primary practitioners of medical science throughout most of human history As Riddle points out, ordinary people in the ancient and medieval worlds may have been common but they were not simple See also Clifford Conner s A People s History of Science

    This book is a joy to read for those who love plants and history It is packed with extensive knowledge about a variety of strange products used to prevent pregnancy and to abort Much of our views about pregnancy has evolved with time and this book truly highlights the evolution of perceptions The stories behind each plant and the methods used is fascinating to say the least.

    I give the book four stars and not five, because it lacks of the practical useful recipes However, the book is not meant to be a recipe book, but there is no herbal family planning book on the market.Otherwise it is well written and informative and terminates with the view that women did have no means to plan the size of their families before the contraceptive pill co The contrary might be true and it is all about choices Today, the only natural family planning method is the extended rhythm method.The herbs mentioned are mostly defined with their Latin names.Most of the book is a study of old literature Oral lore is not included.Other herb book writers do not include contraception and abortion at all, even women s herbal books I know don t We need a history book, written by a male to learn about the most important herbs for women
