The Kama Sutra (the 'science of love') is one of the world s greatest books. Written between the 1st and 4th centuries AD, it is a magnificent treatise on sexual conduct and erotic technique. Its purpose is not simply to provide a menu for the sensual epicure or a training programme for the sexual athlete, but to comment on the situations in which men and women encounter, and to deal with them in such a way as to achieve personal fulfilment through ecstasy. This edition contains the classic translation by Sir Richard Burton, first published in 1883.

This Modern Library Paperback Classic reprints the authoritative text of Sir Richard F. Burton's 1883 translation.
