The Boundaries of Desire by Eric Berkowitz

Berkowitz approaches issues of gender, race, and sexuality through the lens of law and reveals the underpinnings of America’s perspective on sex, social welfare, marriage, immigration, and more. Berkowitz’s writing on the policing of single motherhood, the American eugenics movement, and the social capital of the phrase “welfare queen” is particularly relevant. - Clara
