5 ASBELL, Bernard The Pill: A Biography of the Drug That Changed the World

At least five scientists have been proclaimed "the father of the Pill." We learn here that the credit for its conception belongs to two women who "stand by themselves as the indisputable mothers of the Pill." One of them, Margaret Sanger, was already famous - to many, notorious. The other, Katharine McCormick, didn't even rate an obituary in the nation's leading newspapers. Here is a spellbinding tale of visions and blindness, testing and trials, setbacks and triumphs; of quirky scientists who turned to deciphering nature, and drug companies who turned away.... xvii, 411 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm. An 'as new' copy - bright, clean and unmarked, still quite fresh. Similar, unclipped dustjacket. Weight, 785g.
