Editorial Reviews

Review

'This volume makes a very valuable contribution to the small but growing scholarship on sex and sexuality in China' - Tamara Jacka, Intersections, May 2007

'This volume represents a significant contribution to the critical task of studying sex and sexuality within non-Western contexts. It will be of interest to anyone hoping to theorize and understand sexual cultures within such contexts and also helpful to scholars of Western sexuality seeking to understand the variances that Foucault highlighted between Western and non-Western cultures of sexuality.' - Elanah Uretsky, The China Journal, No 58, July 2007

 

Elaine Jeffreys’ fine introduction pays as much attention to discourse about sex and sexuality as about behavior, seeing them more as social constructs than as “natural.” She reinforces the argument made by many of the volume’s authors that the “standard narrative that celebrates China’s belated entry on the Long March to global modernity, epitomized by Western-style sexual and  political liberation” (p. 2) is misguided. - SUE GRONEWOLD, China Information,  2008; 22; 155
