Feminist historian Therese Oneill is back, to educate you on what to expect when you're expecting...a Victorian baby! In Ungovernable, Oneill conducts an unforgettable tour through the backward, pseudoscientific, downright bizarre parenting fashions of the Victorians, advising us on:

• How to be sure you're not too ugly, sickly, or stupid to breed
• What positions and room decor will help you conceive a son
• How much beer, wine, cyanide, and heroin to consume while pregnant
• How to select the best peasant teat for your child
• Which foods won't turn your children into sexual deviants
• And so much more

Endlessly surprising, wickedly funny, and filled with juicy historical tidbits and images, Ungovernable provides much-needed perspective on - and comic relief from - the age-old struggle to bring up baby.
