"Make Love, Not War is must reading for sex educators, counselors,
and therapists of the 21st century--many of whom were too young to
have experienced the 1960's and 1970's themselves.."
-Alice Laddas "Journal of Sex Education and Therapy
"David Allyn's brisk history of the sexual revolution in America deserves a wide readership and considerable praise."
-"American Historical Review
"Filled with fresh details, this is a strong debut from a gifted young cultural critic."
"Allyn has done a remarkable job of bringing together all the diverse strands of the sexual revolution -- from the principled and political to the purely hedonistic and outright kooky."
"A useful and readable chronicle of the melange of activity and talk that changed American irreversibly.."
-Todd Gitlin, "Chicago Tribune
