Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 075152526X, Paperback)

Sex and the law have never been easy bedfellows. While there have been outrages and indecencies since time immemorial, the definition of immorality, unacceptable behavior, and what legally constitutes evidence has undergone constant revision through the ages. From the glamorous to the seedy, Sex, Crimes & Misdemeanours charts the evolution of sex in the eyes of the law. Taking in the big names of scandal—such as Oscar Wilde, John Profumo, and Lorena Bobbitt—as well as those less known though equally significant, this fascinating book shows the variant effects that time, place, class, and gender can have on legal decisions. Sometimes shocking, always pertinent, Morton’s study is a compelling tour of the taboos and the technicalities of sex law.
