Contraceptive Risk is a thoroughly researched and engrossing approach to the scientific, political and institutional forces involved in health law and policy, as well as the multifaceted politics of measuring risk.
"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
