Sex and Punishment

Historisches Sachbuch von Eric Berkowitz

Sex and Punishment tells the story of the struggle throughout millennia to regulate the most powerful engine of human behaviour: sex. From the savage impalement of an Ancient Mesopotamian adulteress to the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde for ‚gross indecency‘ in 1895, Eric Berkowitz evokes the entire sweep of Western sex law.

Eric Berkowitz ist ein Autor, Journalist und Anwalt. Hier schreibt er äußerst unterhaltsam, aber dennoch historisch akkurat über das heikle Thema von Sexualität und Recht. “I don’t think I’ve ever read such an entertaining historical work. It has the wisdom granted by perspective, without the condescension of someone who thinks we’re wiser than our ancestors. Whether you want to fuel your indignation, or simply furnish yourself with enough jaw-dropping data to galvanise a hundred party conversations, you really must shell out for this book.” (Guardian) (31 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 476 Seiten noch günstig?
