On the Pill: A Social History of Oral Contraceptives,


On the Pill: A Social History of Oral Contraceptives, 1950-1970 A perfectly serviceable history of the development of the pill, although not one that is not otherwise accessible elsewhere Of particular interest in this publication, however, is the emphasis on the development of the patient package insert and the (often lopsided) relationship between doctor and patient (as well as pharmaceutical companies/development and doctors and patients) As always, I am interested in how riskbenefit analyses are carried out and by whom, and this book addressed this complication in adoption of the pill very well Certainly a book to pick up if you’re looking to explore the pill in many facets (not only medical but also through the lenses of technological development, risk calculation, media coverage etc), but perhaps not the seminal work on the subject.
