Colligan argues that Nineteenth-century obscenity was caught up in the global cultural traffic of print technology, international trade and exoticism. She reveals that obscenity intersected majority and minority culture, searched out new print and visual media, and built commercial and fantasmatic global networks for its continuation and survival.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Colette Colligan's fascinating book...draws on material from all these collections, and is itself an important contribution to the historical understanding of obscenity, as well as, more locally, to the famously vexed subject of the sexual mores of the Victorians.' - Gowan Dawson, Archives (British Records Association)

'A book with great value for helping us to understand obscenity's complex role in modernizing and globalizing nineteenth-century Britain.' - Allyson Pease, Victorian Studies
