    Sex in Global History: Modern Sources and Perspectives is a collection of primary and secondary sources that illustrates how sex, gender, and sexuality have changed throughout the world over the past 300 years. These sources range from the Spanish Conquest of North America to contemporary transgender history, and address themes of colonialism, representation, scientific inquiry and authority, rights and regulations, and more.

    Sex in Global History includes material on the imposition of gender norms in China during the 18th and 19th century; race, sex, and gender in Europe before the 20th century; Victorian efforts to regulate sex, gender, and sexuality; and the idea of “new women” around the world who, by the 1920s, proclaimed independence from traditional gender norms. The book builds upon the global history of sex, gender, and sexuality to address contemporary issues including the invention of sexology, the sexual revolutions of the 1970s, and transgender history.

    Offering a rich variety of perspectives, Sex in Global History is ideal for undergraduate courses in anthropology, history, gender studies, and sociology that focus on the histories of sex, gender, and sexuality.
