The History of Sexuality in Europe PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The History of Sexuality in Europe free pdf "The History of Sexuality in Europe: A Sourcebook and Reader" provides a dynamic introduction to the history of sexuality in Europe, from the Greeks to the present. By pairing the latest chapters and articles by experts with primary source excerpts, introduced by an essay that surveys the field of sexuality, it provides a wide-ranging history of the subject and introduces a new concept of sexual grammar. Each chapter of the Reader focuses on a provocative question or debate. The key themes include: the concept of sexual grammar which enables the reader to understand sexual desires, acts and relationships in the past that do not fit modern categories- the questioning of whether, in the Christian and Islamic worlds, the most important division was between heterosexual and homosexual- the problem of imperialism and sexuality- the Foucauldian paradigm- and gender and feminism, demonstrating that we can only understand sexuality if we consider how it is shaped by gender. An essential collection for all students of the history of sexuality.
