This chapter contributes to the growing literature on the history of policy on sexually transmitted infections. Notably, it challenges previous accounts with their strong emphasis on the coercive nature of STI policy in 20th century Britain which Evans argues reflects their narrow concentration on coercion during the two World Wars. A first version was given as an invited paper at an international symposium funded by the Wellcome Trust. The book was peer reviewed, and appeared in a well established historical series.
