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. * Explores what sexuality has meant in the everyday lives of individuals over the last 200 years * Organized around four major themes: the formation of sexual identity, the regulation of sexuality by societal norms, the regulation of sexuality by institutions, and the intersection of sexuality with globalization * Examines the topic from a comparative, global perspective, with well-chosen case studies to illuminate the broader themes * Includes interdisciplinary contributions from prominent historians, sociologists, anthropologists, and sexuality studies scholars * Introduces important theoretical concepts in a clear, accessible way
