About the Author:

Peter Gay is at University of Yale.

Review:

"The most learned, as well as the wittiest survey of human sexuality ever to be published."--The New York Times.

"An astonishing achievement."--Newsweek.

"A major work that promises to reshape our thinking about the Victorian era."--Publishers Weekly.

"A major work of cultural history, monumental in its amibitions, immensely readable, powerfully humane. It is sure to change the way we think about our present as well as our past."--The Nation.

"If the remaining volumes of Peter Gay's extended study live up to this one, it should become a standard work, restoring to the century it treats a historical objectivity which allows us really to see, rather than to categorize patronizingly, our middle-class ancestors."--The San Francisco Chronicle.
