Item Name & Description: Copy of Lesley A. Hall, Sex, Gender and Social Change in Britain since 1880 (Palgrave Macmillan 2012), second edition, updated, revised and expanded. Donated by the author.


Sexual attitudes and behaviour have changed radically in Britain between the Victorian era and the twenty-first century. However, Lesley A. Hall reveals how slow and halting the processes of change have been, and how many continuities have persisted under a façade of modernity.

Thoroughly revised, updated and expanded, the second edition of this established text:

  • explores a wide range of relevant topics including marriage, homosexuality, commercial sex, media representations, censorship, sexually transmitted diseases and sex education
  • features an entirely new last chapter which brings the narrative right up to the present day
  • provides fresh insights by bringing together further original research and recent scholarship in the area.

Lively and authoritative, this is an essential volume for anyone studying the history of sexual culture in Britain during a period of rapid social change.

Starting Bid: $10

Notes: the author will sign if required, and will cover shipping costs internationally.

Bidding is now open. It closes Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
