description

Sex in the Heartland takes a long view of the "sexual revolution" which rocked the United States in the post-WWII period. Bailey brilliantly demonstrates that the sexual revolution, iconized in the militant east and west coast movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s, transformed the heartland of America as well, specifically Lawrence, Kansas. Bailey shows how the sexual revolution was comprised of a spectrum of individuals, from women who resisted college curfews to the Kansas University chapter of the Gay Liberation Front. This diverse generation of Americans successfully broke away from the traditional sexual mores of the pre-revolutionary period.
