Kinsey Synopsis

Alfred C. Kinsey was perhaps the most controversial figure in the US during the 1950s. His books on sexual behavior in the human male and female made best-seller lists and were translated into thirteen languages. Kinsey was denounced by journalists, clergymen, members of Congress, educators, and even housewives, yet upon his death, the New York Times called him In Kinsey: A Biography, Cornelia V. Christenson, an assistant to Dr. Kinsey, discloses the man behind the myth. She reveals how this dedicated family man and lover of the great outdoors began his journey as a scientist and ended up studying sexuality. And as Christenson points out, perhaps Kinsey's greatest accomplishment during his long struggle for academic freedom was protecting the freedom of the scientist to explore and analyze any field of inquiry.
