Pornography / Edition 1

Does pornography have harmful effects on individuals? What are these effects and how should society deal with them? The authors of this volume attempt to answer these and other important questions by placing pornography within the broader context of theories of fundamental human nature. Their approach reveals a systematic interweaving of social science, morality and the law from three different perspectives: conservative//moralistic, liberal and feminist. The book will be an invaluable contribution to current research on pornography and obscenity.
