Doan AE, Williams JC. The politics of virginity : abstinence in sex education. Westport, Conn.: Praeger; 2008.

"This book has a message that extends well beyond abstinence education: Public policy is sometimes less about achieving particular goals and more about enforcing particular value systems. Recommended reading for anyone interested in the policy implications of morality politics." -- Kevin Smith, Professor, Dept. of Political Science, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
