As a wide-ranging survey of British attitudes to scandal and sexual behaviour in this century, this book covers the Edwardian era through World War I and the beginning of contraception, through the suffragettes and the uproar over "Lady Chatterley's Lover". The book uses a number of case studies to demonstrate the peculiar British mixture of hypocrisy and prurient interest in sexual scandals.
