Weeder in the Garden of the Lord presents the life and career of Anthony Comstock, the man responsible for the passage of laws that affect the sex lives of all Americans. In the first biography of Comstock to be published since 1927, Anne Louise Bates details Comstock's life, his connection and influence over American anti-obscenity laws, and his encounters with nineteenth-century figures such as Victoria C. Woodhull and Margaret Sanger. Written for scholars and teachers of various history classes, this book serves as an excellent text for courses in: Women's History, U.S. Social History, U.S. Gilded Age History, 19th-Century History, Legal History, or Religious History.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...she has accomplished the seemingly impossible; setting Comstock in his time and place (Victorian America) she has made this archetype of grotesque a credible human being. She has also performed a civic service, for (alas) the legacy of Comstock is still very much with us, on our lawbooks and in attitudes. -- Paul A. Carter, Professor of History, University of Arizona (retired)
