Synopsis: Sexology Uncensored brings together, for the first time, many of the key documents of the modern science of sexuality that emerged in the late nineteenth century. The early pioneers of the new field of sexology examined and classified sexual behaviours, identities and relations. For years much of the material here has been "censored" - difficult to obtain, subject to restrictive circulation, or available only in medical archives. This volume offers readers access to the primary materials on which contemporary sexology is founded and, as such, it is an invaluable record for all those interested in how we have come to think about sex and sexuality over the last one hundred years.
Review: "Sexology Uncensored brings together the crucial writings of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century that are the intellectual source from which many of our late twentieth?century notions about sex have sprung. These writings also reveal the terrible anxieties and intense fascinations about sex that our forefathers harbored and foisted on us. This is an intelligently ?constructed collection that will be useful to the scholar and eye opening to the general reader." Lillian Faderman, California State University, Fresno and author of Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers
"[A] helpful companion volume of extracts." The Times Literary Supplement
"An impressive array of prominent researchers ... a remarkable selection of original documents illustrating the essays in Sexology in Culture ? though they are fascinating reading even in isolation ... Either of these books on its own adds considerably to our understanding of the production of knowledge about sexuality, reproduction and race; together they provide an excellent basis for the study of writing around sex." The Fawcett Library Newsletter
"The reader gets a rich flavour of source material alongside incisive critical analysis; a productive combination for student, academic and general reader." The Times Higher Education Supplement
