The Big Redhead Book: Inside the Secret Society of Red Hair is an inside look into one of the most elite societies in the world—the real two percent. Well, you know, the two percent of the world's population that are natural redheads, at least. This book has equal parts pop culture, ginger facts, and humorous stories about what it's like to actually have red hair. It's loaded with everything you'd ever want to know about us reds; how we're scientifically different from the norms (non-redheads), how we've been stereotyped in pop culture, and the do's and don'ts of having a red in your life, among other things! Whether you are a redhead, know a redhead, or are just an enthusiast, this book explores the realities, the myths, and where red hair actually originates (it’s not Ireland). Author Erin La Rosa not only delivers the facts, statistics, and undeniable realities of being a ginger, but she also weaves in her own personal and hilarious stories about being red. Being a redhead is not just a hair color, it’s a lifestyle—and this book is your own exclusive peek into that fabulous world. Some surprising facts about redheads that you will discover include: - The association between redheads and humor came from redheaded slaves in ancient Greece - There are over 30 leading or recurring redhead characters in Disney and Pixar films... that's a lot when you remember we're only two percent of the world's population! - Redhead women allegedly have more sex, more threesomes, and more orgasms than other women... or do they? Let's find out! - Some Egyptian rulers dyed their hair red to assert their power (looking at you, Cleopatra) - And redheads need more anesthesia at the dentist, because they're not going down without a fight

Accompanying a major exhibition of the same title at the Museum of the City of New York, Mod New York traces the stylistic progression of 1960s fashion and style through a decidedly New York City lens. During this period clothing assumed communicative powers, reflecting the momentous societal changes of the day: the emergence of a counterculture, the women's liberation movement, the rise of African-American consciousness, and the radicalism arising from the protests of the Vietnam War. New York City, as the nation's fashion and creative capital, became the critical flashpoint for these debates. This fashion arc is beautifully illustrated by 200 groundbreaking and historically significant designs drawn from the renowned costume collection at MCNY.

In this book Hera Cook traces the path of sexuality in England, and shows how its route was determined by the gradual exertion of control over fertility. Most sexual activity had major economic and social costs, the most fundamental of which was the physical cost of children upon women's bodies. Around 1800 birth rates reached historical heights. Using a combination of demographic and qualitative sources, Dr Cook examines the connection between the struggle to lower fertility andthe increasing repression of sexuality throughout the nineteenth century. Contraception became a viable option in the early twentieth century. The book charts the resulting slow relaxation of attitudes to sexuality and the remaking of heterosexual physical behaviour, culminating in the sexualrevolution of the 1960s.
