"What is Love? provides a timely appreciation of Richard Carlile's neglected shocker, Every Woman's Book. Originally published in 1826, it scored a double first: as a progressive sex manual and as the first book in English to specify methods of contraception.

Carlile, a leading radical of the early nineteenth century, was notorious for his blend of republicanism, atheism, and libertarianism.  His book created a philosophy of sex which was found irresponsible and obscene at the time but today appears sensible and progressive."
