Sexuality in World History

English | April 2, 2009 | 192 pages | PDF | 1,35 Mb

This book examines sexuality in the past, and explores how it helps explain sexuality in the present. The subject of sexuality is often a controversial one, and exploring it through a world history perspective emphasises the extent to which societies, including our own, are still reacting to historical change through contemporary sexual behaviours, values, and debates.

The study uses a clear chronological structure to focus on major patterns and changes in sexuality C both sexual culture and sexual behaviours C in the main periods of world history, with comparison and discussion across cultures and societies. Topics covered include:

--issues involved in studying the history of sexuality

--the sexual implications of the transition from hunting and gathering economies to agricultural economies

--sexuality in Classical societies

--the post-Classical period and the spread of the world religions

--sex in an age of trade and colonies

--changes in sexual behaviours and sexual attitudes between 1750 and 1950

--sex in contemporary world history.

The book is a vital contribution to the study of world history, and is the perfect companion for all students of the history of sexuality.

'Expansive and accessible, Peter Stearns'Sexuality in World History offers a much needed introduction to histories of sexuality from a global perspective.'C Mary Spongberg- Head of Department of Modern History, Macquarie University, USA
