The Introduction discusses the purpose of the book, which is to explain the fierce debates among whites and African Americans about American women's sexuality in the early 20th century that set an older motherhood-centered ideal against a modern female style and produced a new conception of marriage that prevailed until the challenges of the Women's Liberation Movement. The Introduction also summarizes the chapters that follow.
