In Contraception and Abortion from the Ancient World to the Renaissance , John Riddle showed, through extraordinary scholarly sleuthing, that women from ancient Egyptian times to the fifteenth century had relied on an extensive pharmacopoeia of herbal abortifacients and contraceptives to regulate fertility. In Eve's Herbs , Riddle explores a new question: If women once had access to effective means of birth control, why was this knowledge lost to them in modern times?
