This enthralling and provocative book provides a new grounding for the understanding of sexual rights. It argues that all varieties of sexuality under capitalism are materially constructed out of the complex interrelationship between the market and the state. The examples of different sexual rights and lack of rights that it examines include the experience of male homosexuals, bisexuals, transvestites, transsexualists and children. Meticulous, focused and challenging, it will be required reading for anyone interested in modern human sexualities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There are good things in this book, certainly: some chic, an analysis of the demonizing of bisexuality almost Sedgwickian in its power, a brilliant and courageous analysis of the ambiguous and cruel positioning of the child as sexual agent, and a consistently high level of smart talk...It's a book rich in detail and tantalizingly wry and quick."
-Lesbian and Gay Studies Newsletter, March 1994
"David Evans, a Scottish sociologist, has made an ambitious attempt in "Sexual Citizenship to demonstrate how the social construction of contemporary sexualities takes place within the crucible of advanced capitalism and modern state politics (especially Thatcherism)."
-"The Women's Review of Books, March 1994
