Mathew Kuefler has created a unique sourcebook that crosses all continents and transcends historical periods. Ancient, medieval, and modern voices from Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas offer their opinions on topics from love and marriage to patriarchy and censorship while excerpts from religious, legal, political, and poetic texts comment on sex and human existence. Sappho, Mencius, Jesus, Karl Marx, Mahatma Gandhi, and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick all have their say on sex and desire. Roman emperors, Hindu mystics, geishas, Nazis, and the Kinsey Report are all represented in this first of its kind collection. A truly stimulating array of documents relating to all aspects of sexuality.



Thoughtful commentary, questions for discussion, and recommended further readings accompany each excerpt. The Sourcebook also includes 24 black and white illustrations and an index.

About the Author:

Mathew Kuefler is an Associate Professor of History at San Diego State University and the Editor of the Journal of the History of Sexuality. He is the author of The Manly Eunuch: Masculinity, Gender Ambiguity, and Christian Ideology in Late Antiquity and the editor of The Boswell Thesis: Essays for the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of John Boswell’s Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality.

Review:

Historians are as interested in sex as the next person. But we soon find this most dangerous subject to be extremely hard to master for oneself—harder still to make accessible to others. I only wish my own awkward start in the field had been eased by a guide half as helpful as Mathew Kuefler's new History of Sexuality Sourcebook. Selecting his texts from diverse cultures and more than two millennia, Kuefler seeks to reach beyond sexuality specialists to historians and their students. Inspired by the 'open-mindedness of thought' that he recommends, he guides his readers through the thickets of theory and interpretation confidently and with plain good sense. His readers will meet Darwin and biology, as well as Marx and Freud, plus a good selection of cultural theorists. His 'Questions for Reflection and Discussion' empower readers for genuine engagement with each document. This volume is a keeper. Courses based on Kuefler will illuminate their audiences and probably win teaching awards too.

(Paul R. Hyams, Cornell University)

Mathew Kuefler has ransacked Clio's closet. Selecting from among the more provocative pieces of her wardrobe, Kuefler has dressed up the muse of history to accentuate her sex appeal. Showcasing old favorites as well as the very latest styles, Kuefler's thorough and thoughtful catalogue of primary sources on the history of sexuality will be an essential reference for students and teachers alike (his questions for discussion make excellent accessories). For all those who follow the fashions of the sexual past, The History of Sexuality Sourcebook is a must-have.

(Steven Maynard, Queen's University)
