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 backwards, 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

About Therese: Therese Oneill is the New York Times bestselling author of Unmentionable: The Victorian Lady's Guide to Sex, Marriage and Manners.
