Abstract:

John D'Emilio and Estelle Freedman describe the different sexual worlds of plantation slaves, European immigrants, and the urban middle class, and how sexual matters moved from the privacy of the bedroom to its commercial exploitation and its entry into mass culture. The authors shed light on the complex nature of race, gender, and class inequality. They discuss such issues as white slavery and lynching, how sex has served as a symbol for a wide range of social problems, and how conflicts over sexuality have sometimes shaped the political and cultural contours of an era. D'Emilio and Freedman have drawn on court records, diaries, letters, and popular art and culture to provide both a scholarly interpretation of the history of sexuality and a compelling narrative of the lives of anonymous Americans.--From publisher description.
