Overview

American Sexual Histories is a collection of fourteen articles investigating human sexuality in America from the colonial period to the modern day. The essays reflect the many ways historians analyze sexuality and sexual trends, and explore such topics as contraception, interracial sex, "free love," hysteria, homosexuality, reproductive issues, and the sexual revolution. The volume shows how the evolution of sexuality in America is a product of ongoing negotiation of moral values and shifting political and economic circumstances.

Arranged chronologically, the chapters each contain an introduction and one major article, plus supporting documents that illustrate the time, place, and issues covered by the main article. Editor Elizabeth Reis provides a general introduction, questions for study and discussion, and further reading lists that make this an ideal collection for students studying the history of sexuality in America.
