Item Name & Description: Copy of paperback reprint of Roger Davidson and Lesley A. Hall (eds), Sex, Sin and Suffering: Venereal Disease and European Society since 1870 (Routledge 2000). Donated by Lesley A. Hall.


This volume brings together for the first time a series of studies on the social history of venereal disease in modern Europe and its former colonies. It explores, from a comparative perspective, the responses of legal, medical and political authorities to the ‘Great Scourge’. In particular, how such responses reflected and shaped social attitudes towards sexuality and social relationships of class, gender, generation and race.
