"By far the most thorough account of the Depo-Provera story to date. Though we may never get clear answers about whether Depo-Provera has done more harm than good over the past few decades, this well-researched history will be of great interest to those in the public health and women and gender studies fields, as well as many women contemplating the use of Depo-Provera themselves."-Judy Norsigian,co-author and co-founder of Our Bodies Ourselves and the Boston Women's Health Book Collective "William Green's fascinating tale of the use and misuse of Depo-Provera highlights the complex and faulty world of `risk management,' the competing powerful interests at stake in drug approval and use, and the misuse of contraceptive drugs in controlling reproduction and sexual deviance." -Karen L. Baird,co-author of Beyond Reproduction: Women's Health, Activism, and Public Policy
