From the Back Cover:

A Global History of Sexuality provides a provocative, wide-ranging introduction to the history of sexuality from the late eighteenth century to the present day. Contributions written by prominent historians, sociologists, anthropologists, and sexuality studies scholars combine to provide the very best and most recent research into what sexuality has meant in the everyday lives of individuals in modern times.

Chapters are organized around four interrelated processes: the formation of sexual identities, the regulation of sexuality by societal norms, the regulation of sexuality by institutions, and the intersection of sexuality with global/transnational processes. Within these areas they address a range of topics including sexuality and the nation-state; sexuality and modern imperialism; sexuality and the contemporary world; sex and disease; sexuality and international migration; sex trafficking; and sexuality and mass media. Each chapter takes a world view, exploring global processes and including explicit comparisons between countries and regions. Grounded in the latest research on the history of sexuality in the modern world, and using specific case studies to illuminate broader trends, the book is written in an accessible style suitable for general readers, including undergraduate university students.
