From Front Porch to Back Seat

Courtship in Twentieth-Century America

"Whether or not we've come a long way since then, this engaging study of courtship shows that at least half the fun is in reading about getting there."

"As entertaining as it is informative. Bailey documents sources from Margaret Mead to advertising's hokey hype in her comprehensive analysis of the rituals of American amore, exploring the themes of 'control, competition, consumption, the sexual economy, etiquette and gender.'."

"A fascinating study of an important part of our recent past."
