"In The Politics of Sex, Bararba Sullivan debate about the regulation of sex in the latter part of the twenieth century in Australia...Sullivan had made a very useful contribution to scholarship and manages at time to hold a conversation with those in the "political arena." Law and History Review, Summer 01
This political history of the sex industry in Australia cogently presents all sides of a complex and changing debate. It looks at how prostitution and pornography are regulated, and how debates about them are produced. Sullivan examines political and legal discourse in the broader societal context of changing attitudes to sexual conduct. Using a broad range of examples from newspapers to films to demographics, the book highlights questions of censorship and of literature vs pornography. It also offers a critique of feminist debates.
