Sex, Politics and Society is as much a history of changing patterns of family life, gender, domesticity and intimacy as of erotic life. It firmly places what had traditionally been seen as marginal (notably homosexuality) within the broad stream of sexualities. J. Weeks strongly emphasises the historical construction of human sexualities and identities, and does so with reference to social context and social change - industrialization, urbanisation, imperialism, the rise of the Welfare state, the emergence of new social movements such as feminism and gay liberation, the development of new forms of social conservatism, and changing legal, medical and informal modes of sexual regulation. In Sex, Politics and Society J. Weeks continues to stress the significance of historical construction, an approach made popular by his previous edition.
