The Pill for the People
The contraceptive pill came about through a series of surprises and apparent contradictions which stretch back 60 years. The purpose of the pill was to reduce the world's population problem, but it has become instead a controversial symbol of sex in affluent countries which have little or no population problem.
The man who everyone thought was dead tells how he found the Mexican root from which all pills derive. The' first doctor to prescribe the pill in Puerto Rico revisits the women who have been on it longer than anyone else in the world. It was a product of the western capitalist system, but the biggest pill user now is communist China. The story of this paradoxical product is told by those who actually did the work, and the successes of the pill are used to suggest reasons for its failure.

A series of six investigations into the paranormal
Introduced by Colin Wilson Dream Me a Winner by COLIN GODMAN starring Peter Egan
Oxford in 1946. Lord Kilbracken, then John Godley , a student at Balliol, goes to sleep and takes a glimpse into the future. Was this a case of true precognition or just a lucky coincidence?
This reconstruction of Lord Kilbracken's excursions into prophecy is reinforced by his friends' recollections of a case that remains an unsolved mystery for them all.
