Summary
"Sex in the Heartland is the story of the sexual revolution in a small university town in the quintessential heartland state of Kansas."--BOOK JACKET. "Bailey fundamentally challenges contemporary perceptions of the revolution as simply a triumph of free love and promiscuity. Rather, she explores the long-term and mainstream changes in American society, beginning in the economic and social dislocations of World War II and the explosion of mass media and communication, which aided and abetted the sexual upheaval of the 1960s. Focusing on Lawrence, Kansas, we discover the intricacies and depth of a transformation that was nurtured at the grass roots."--BOOK JACKET. "Bailey untangles the radically different origins, intentions, and outcomes of events and movements to help us better understand their roles and meanings for sex in contemporary America. She argues that the sexual revolution challenged and partially overturned a system of sexual controls based on oppression, inequality, and exploitation, and created new models of sex and gender relations that have shaped our society in powerful and positive ways."--BOOK JACKET
