Sex, Gender and Social Change in Britain since 1880, Paperback / softback Book

Sex, Gender and Social Change in Britain since 1880 Paperback / softback

Part of the Gender and History series


Sexual attitudes and behaviour have changed radically in Britain between the Victorian era and the twenty-first century.

However, Lesley A. Hall reveals how slow and halting the processes of change have been, and how many continuities have persisted under a facade of modernity. Thoroughly revised, updated and expanded, the second edition of this established text:* explores a wide range of relevant topics including marriage, homosexuality, commercial sex, media representations, censorship, sexually transmitted diseases and sex education* features an entirely new last chapter which brings the narrative right up to the present day* provides fresh insights by bringing together further original research and recent scholarship in the area. Lively and authoritative, this is an essential volume for anyone studying the history of sexual culture in Britain during a period of rapid social change.
