Overview

For better or worse, pornography and sexual representation suffuse American culture. This first comprehensive guide to the literature includes the history of pornography in the United States and discusses pornography in a vast range of media. It presents information regarding bibliographies and reference tools concerning pornography and reviews of references devoted to the histories of sexuality and its representations and on theoretical works on erotica and pornography. A chronology of important dates in the history of American Pornography and a discussion of child pornography outline issues and events throughout its history. Dramatic, visual, and electronic media are gathered and arranged by topic. Pornography in all of its forms is explored in this three volume reference. Slade includes many avenues upon which pornography and sexual representation have had an impact including research and policy in the medical and social sciences, the law in the United States, and the economics of pornography.

An invaluable tool for further research, this guide to the literature of pornography and sexual representation will appeal to scholars and students of popular culture, gender and women's studies, and gay and lesbian studies. It will also interest those in the field of American history and mass media.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Two premises support this interesting three-volume set. First, "pornography does not compel assent to a particular agenda," and thus remains marginal and a source of energy to mainstream culture. Second, pornography is viewed by Slade (communications, Ohio State U.) as a kind of sexual folklore ("All folklore is erotic," said the folklorist Gershon Legman). The first volume provides a chronology of American pornography; Slade's short essay, "Thinking About Pornography"; a history of American pornography; a bibliographic essay on research and reference tools; histories of sexuality and its representations; theoretical works on erotica and pornography, a discussion of maintaining major research collections, and lastly, child pornography. Volume two focuses on representation, specifically, the landscape of the body (displayed bodies, sexualities, and erotic toys), and porn in performance, art, photography, cinema, video, and electronic media. The last volume surveys pornography in folklore, erotic literature, periodicals, advertising, comics, medical and social science research, and pornography in conjunction with the law and the economy. Each volume contains a table of contents for the whole set. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
