Palgrave Advances in the Modern History of Sexuality offers a comprehensive and accessible overview of historical debate in the history of European and American sexuality since c. 1750. Each chapter explores in detail one theme, such as race, pornography, marriage, science or religion, which historians have seen as essential to writing the history of sexuality. The book therefore not only offers a broad introduction to the state of the art, but also suggests new directions for research and debate.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2006

'This stunning new collection of essays does not merely introduce newcomers to the field of the history of sexuality, but serves as a wake-up call for students and professional historians alike to rethink the very way we approach the sexual lives of individuals of the past. By replacing the all-too-familiar chronological format with a bold organizational strategy around several key concepts-such as law, medicine, the urban, demography, and religion-this innovative, pioneering volume examines past and present critical engagements with sexual history and, most importantly, suggests how we might shape the discipline's future.' - Laura Doan, Professor of Cultural History and Sexuality Studies, University of Manchester, UK

'Provocative and engaging, this collection goes well beyond a state-of-the-field summarization to pose new questions and propose new directions in the history of sexuality. Thematically organized, authored by veterans as well as rising young scholars, the chapters demonstrate the great range of concerns and variety of approaches in this complex, growing area of study. This is an immensely useful, illuminating text.' - John Howard, Professor of American Studies, King's College London, UK

'This collection constitutes a welcome addition to the literature. It will serve students and scholars alike, by providing an introduction and up-to-date guide to the salient methods and debates within the history of sexuality.' - Katherine Crawford, European History Quarterly
