Keine andere Liebesgeschichte hat das Publikum auf der ganzen Welt so mitgerissen wie diese große Saga um die verwöhnte Scarlett O'Hara und ihren zynischen Verehrer Rhett Butler.Mit einzigartiger Intensität zeichnet Margaret Mitchell nach, wie eine große Liebe zerbricht und lässt gleichzeitig eine längst vergangene Epoche lebendig werden. Die Südstaatlerin Scarlett O'Hara ist jung und vom Leben verwöhnt. Als Tochter eines Plantagenbesitzers lebt sie im Luxus auf dem Familiengut Tara, und es mangelt ihr nicht an Verehrern. Doch der Ausbruch des Bürgerkriegs verändert mit einem Schlag alles. Plötzlich muss Scarlett mit aller Kraft um die Erhaltung ihres Familienbesitzes kämpfen. Ein Mann taucht immer wieder in ihrem Leben auf und steht ihr in den Wirren der Nachkriegszeit bei: der skrupellose Kriegsgewinnler Rhett Butler. Zwischen ihm und Scarlett entwickelt sich eine große Liebe, doch beide sind auch viel zu stolz und eigensinnig, um diese Liebe zu leben... Margaret Mitchells Klassiker wurde sofort nach Erscheinen im Jahre 1936 zum Bestseller und hat seitdem Millionen Leser auf der ganzen Welt begeistert. Die legendäre Verfilmung drei Jahre später machte Vivien Leigh als Scarlett und Clark Gable als Rhett zum berühmtesten Liebespaar der Filmgeschichte.

Undoubtedly the most influential advocate for birth control even before the term existed, Margaret Sanger ignited a movement that has shaped our society to this day. Her views on reproductive rights have made her a frequent target of conservatives and so-called family values activists. Yet lately even progressives have shied away from her, citing socialist leanings and a purported belief in eugenics as a blight on her accomplishments. In this captivating new biography, the renowned feminist historian Jean H. Baker rescues Sanger from such critiques and restores her to the vaunted place in history she once held. Trained as a nurse and midwife in the gritty tenements of New York's Lower East Side, Sanger grew increasingly aware of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy—both physical and psychological. A botched abortion resulting in the death of a poor young mother catalyzed Sanger, and she quickly became one of the loudest voices in favor of sex education and contraception. The movement she started spread across the country, eventually becoming a vast international organization with her as its spokeswoman. Sanger's staunch advocacy for women's privacy and freedom extended to her personal life as well. After becoming a wife and mother at a relatively early age, she abandoned the trappings of home and family for a globe-trotting life as a women's rights activist. Notorious for the sheer number of her romantic entanglements, Sanger epitomized the type of "free love" that would become mainstream only at the very end of her life. That she lived long enough to see the creation of the birth control pill—which finally made planned pregnancy a reality—is only fitting.

Are overburdened mothers justified in their appeals for contraceptives or abortions?... Will anyone... dare to say to these women that they should go on bringing helpless children in to the world to share their misery?... To say to these women that they should continue their helpless breeding of the helpless is stupid brutality. -from "Avoiding Childbirth" An iconic figure in the fight for reproductive rights for women in America, Margaret Sanger was a powerful voice in the early years of the 20th century. This 1920 book is Sanger's cry for the legalization of birth control and the education of women about their own bodies. With a fiery passion, she discusses: .women's struggle for freedom .the wickedness of creating large families .contraceptives or abortion? .legislating woman's morals .and more. An important record of the beginnings of the feminism in the modern era, Sanger's words remain vital and necessary at a time when women's control over their bodies continues to be challenged. American activist MARGARET HIGGINS SANGER (1879-1966) was an early advocate of birth control; she served as president of the International Planned Parenthood Federation from 1952 to 1959. She also wrote Happiness in Marriage (1926) and her autobiography (1938).

When Margaret Sanger returned to Europe in 1920, World War I had altered the social landscape as dramatically as it had the map of Europe. Population concerns, sexuality, venereal disease, and contraceptive use had entered public discussion, and Sanger's birth control message found receptive audiences around the world. This volume focuses on Sanger from her groundbreaking overseas advocacy during the interwar years through her postwar role in creating the International Planned Parenthood Federation. The documents reconstruct Sanger's dramatic birth control advocacy tours through early 1920s Germany, Japan, and China in the midst of significant government and religious opposition to her ideas. They also trace her tireless efforts to build a global movement through international conferences and tours. Letters, journal entries, writings, and other records reveal Sanger's contentious dealings with other activists, her correspondence with the likes of Albert Einstein and Eleanor Roosevelt, and Sanger's own dramatic evolution from gritty grassroots activist to postwar power broker and diplomat.
