Incorporating the most recent scholarship on a broad range of conceptual problems and national contexts, the book investigates the shifting fortunes of marriage and prostitution, contraception and abortion, queer and straight existence. It analyzes sexual violence in war and peace, the promotion of sexual satisfaction in fascist and democratic societies, the role of eugenics and disability, the politicization and commercialization of sex, and processes of secularization and religious renewal.
A compelling account of the tumultuous history of Europe's 'century of sex'. From the role of activists and social movements to the impact of war, disease and economic change, Dagmar Herzog charts how sexual preferences, politics and identities as well as the very nature of desire and happiness have changed.

Sexuality in Europe : A Twentieth-Century History
Seller Inventory n. Book Description Cambridge University Press, Seller Inventory M Bookseller Inventory ST Seller Inventory ST Not Signed; This original book brings a fascinating and accessible account of the tumultuous history of sexuality in Europe from the waning of Victorianism to the collapse of Communism and the rise of European Islam.

By emphasizing the interrelationship between practices and ideological change - in family form, religious organization, medical logic, legal structures, and notions of deviancy - Katherine Crawford's accessible survey reveals how these changes produced the conditions in which our modern notions of sexuality were developed.
This book will be essential reading for students of early modern European history and the history of sexuality.
