Raising Sexually Pure Kids: Sexual Abstinence, Conservative Christians and American Politics analyzes pro-abstinence discourses issued by the conservative Christian community and the G.W. Bush administration, to underline that abstinence is not a peripheral matter, but is a cultural and political issue of great significance in US society, especially in the past decade. This book seeks to bring to light how pro-abstinence discourses coalesce most of the core agendas of conservative Christians - like creationism, parental rights or the culture war - and enabled them and the Bush administration, to on the one hand, preserve traditional hierarchies and on the other hand, maintain the sense of threat necessary to the protection of the status quo and to the enduring commitment of the conservative Christian constituency.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The conclusions are well substantiated with meticulous research ... Gresle-Favier's contention that it is worthwhile to look at mobilization of abstinence sex education and moral panics about sex in the United States is convincing" in: Journal of American Studies, 44 (2010) "This very well documented book contributes to a better understanding of the political significance of abstinence education by carefully documenting its ideological tenets, and by taking its subject seriously enough to avoid oversimplification and caricature." - Guillaume Marche, Universite Paris-Est Creteil
