The dissertation is divided into two sections. Part one treats the historical context with its primary focus on the messages of the early phases of the modern sexual revolution. It contains three chapters. Chapter 1 summarizes the post-World War I era. Chapter 2 treats the changing attitudes about sex and marriage among the middle and upper-classes. Chapter 3 examines the modern birth control, population and eugenics movements. Throughout this section the focus is on the United States and Great Britain because it would be activists from these two nations who led the West in promoting the messages of the modern sexual revolution especially as seen in the spread of birth control. Part two provides the story of Lambeth 1930's Resolution #15. Chapters 4 and 5 reconstruct the Conference debate on birth control. Chapter 6 covers the analysis of the ensuing public debate. A conclusion reflects on the ramifications of the decisions made on that hot August day in 1930.
