As the first full-length study of the history of sexuality in America, Intimate Matters offered trenchant insights into the sexual behavior of Americans from colonial times to the present. Now, twenty-five years after its first publication, this groundbreaking classic is back in a crucial and updated third edition. With new and extended chapters, D’Emilio and Freedman give us an even deeper understanding of how sexuality has dramatically influenced politics and culture throughout our history and into the present. Hailed by critics for its comprehensive approach and noted by the US Supreme Court in the landmark Laurence v. Texas ruling, this expanded new edition of Intimate Matters details the changes in sexuality and the ongoing growth of individual freedoms in the United States through meticulous research and lucid prose. Praise for earlier editions “The book John D’Emilio co-wrote with Estelle B. Freedman, Intimate Matters, was cited by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy when, writing for a majority of court on July 26, he and his colleagues struck down a Texas law criminalizing sodomy. The decision was widely hailed as a victory for gay rights—and it derived in part, according to Kennedy's written comments, from the information he gleaned from this book.”—Julia Keller, Chicago Tribune “Fascinating. . . . D’Emilio and Freedman marshal their material to chart a gradual but decisive shift in the way Americans have understood sex and its meaning in their lives.” —Barbara Ehrenreich, New York Times Book Review “With comprehensiveness and care . . . D’Emilio and Freedman have surveyed the sexual patterns for an entire nation across four centuries.” —Martin Bauml Duberman, Nation

These readings are organized into four sections. The first explores the wellsprings of the debates in the relationship between the postmodern and the enterprise it both continues and contravenes: modernism. Here philosophers, social and political commentators, as well as cultural and literary analysts present controversial background essays on the complex history of postmodernism. The readings in the second section debate the possibility or desirability of trying to define the postmodern, given its cultural agenda of decentering, challenging, even undermining the guiding master narratives of Western culture. The readings in the third section explore postmodernism s complicated complicity with these very narratives, while the fourth section moves from theory to practice in order to investigate, in a variety of fields, the common denominators of the postmodern condition in action."

`By combining the latest in analysis with original sources, and by centering each chapter on a question. this Reader offers an excellent way to introduce students to the history of sexuality and to the methodologies that have shaped this dynamic field. Although the book's primary focus is Europe, it places European developments in a global context, and so opens up opportunities for comparative and transnational discussions.' Merry Wiesner-Hanks, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, USA `This volume forms a valuable supplement to Anna Clark's Desire. It provides a taster menu of some of the very varied primary source materials interrogated by historians of sexuality alongside "worked examples" in the form of analyses of particular crucial questions by leading scholars in the field. With its broad time-span and wide geographical range as well as the diversity of issues it addresses, this will surely become an essential introduction to this vibrant field.' Lesley Hall, Wellcome Library, UK The History of Sexuality in Europe: A sourcebook and reader is a dynamic introduction to the latest debates inthe history of sexuality in Europe. It begins with an introduction, "The magnetic poetry kit of sex," that surveys the field of sexuality and introduces the new concept of sexual grammar. The Reader focuses on the modern age, but has three chapters on the ancient and medieval worlds to demonstrate their very different cultures of sexuality. An essential collection for all students of the history of sexuality.
