"succeeds beautifully....provides an intriguing look at group dynamics and gender politics."
-Wendy Simonds, "Signs
""Rock-a-by-Baby is a moving story grounded in women's experience of postpartum depression. It is also an insightful analysis of new social movements and feminism in late-twentieth-century America. Verta Taylor links the personal and the political in rich sociological and feminist tradition. And she does so wonderfully."
""Rock-a-by Baby is feminist sociology at its best."
-Barrie Thorne, University of California, Berkeley
"Taylor skillfully combines the concept of women's culture from feminist gender studies and the social construction of postpartum depression by patients, physicians, and psychiatrists. She traces the complexities and contradictions in this ultimately political discourse in an original and widely applicable framework that expands social movement theory and feminist theory."
-Judith Lorber, CUNY
