"This book tells the story of how our political struggles over race, immigration, and queer folks came to center around reproductive politics--children, households, and families. Race-based shaming of irresponsible reproductive behavior--from an account of Black "welfare queens" and Latina immigrant "breeding machines" to Clinton's crackdown on immigration following "Nannygate"--Were instrumental in creating a new normal: the shredding of the government safety net for families and households, the end of the period of rising real wages and a living wage that enabled people to support families and dependents, and the immiseration of households. Laura Briggs argues for the critical importance of paying attention to reproductive politics in this new era"--Provided by publisher.
