Summary

A Global History of Sexuality provides a provocative, wide-ranging introduction to the history of sexuality from the late eighteenth century to the present day.

 

  • Explores what sexuality has meant in the everyday lives of individuals over the last 200 years
  • Organized around four major themes: the formation of sexual identity, the regulation of sexuality by societal norms, the regulation of sexuality by institutions, and the intersection of sexuality with globalization
  • Examines the topic from a comparative, global perspective, with well-chosen case studies to illuminate the broader themes
  • Includes interdisciplinary contributions from prominent historians, sociologists, anthropologists, and sexuality studies scholars
  • Introduces important theoretical concepts in a clear, accessible way
