Editorial Reviews


“The history of sexuality is a continuing endeavor. There is still much that has not yet been written about, and interpretations of key topics will inevitably change over time. Studying these documents and reading some of the historical literature can put you on the road to contributing to this exciting and intriguing intellectual endeavor.”
(John D’Emilio, from the Introduction author of Intimate Matters)

Documenting Intimate Matters is economical, thorough, and timely, including documents from early to very recent American history. It is sure to be a popular and valued companion to courses on the history of sexuality and gender in the United States.”
(Regina Kunzel University of Minnesota)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This text was part of the required reading for a class I was taking at the UW. It is a remarkable anthology of the history of the role sex, gender and romance played in the cultural experience in the U.S. in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
