Handbook of Medieval Sexuality by Vern L. Bullough

Book Description

Like specialists in other fields in humanities and social sciences, medievalists have begun to investigate and write about sex and related topics such as courtship, concubinage, divorce, marriage, prostitution, and child rearing. The scholarship in this significant volume asserts that sexual conduct formed a crucial role in the lives, thoughts, hopes and fears both of individuals and of the institutions that they created in the middle ages. The absorbing subject of sexuality in the Middle Ages is examined in 19 original articles written specifically for this "Handbook" by the major authorities in their scholarly specialties. The study of medieval sexuality poses problems for the researcher: indices in standard sources rarely refer to sexual topics, and standard secondary sources often ignore the material or say little about it. Yet a vast amount of research is available, and the information is accessible to the student who knows where to look and what to look for. This volume is a valuable guide to the material and an indicator of what subjects are likely to yield fresh scholarly rewards.

Bringing Lesbian and Gay Rights into the Mainstream by Vern L. Bullough Bringing Lesbian and Gay Rights into the Mainstream, Hardback (April 2006)

An autobiographical chronicle, this book tells insider stories that are sometimes rousing, other times infuriating, recounting the fight for lesbian and gay rights, from the trenches of the Minnesota state capital to the Washington Beltway. It is useful for educators, students, and activists in search of guidance in the political process.

Crossing Sexual Boundaries by Vern L. Bullough Crossing Sexual Boundaries, Paperback (December 2005)

This book is a compilation of autobiographies of men and women who openly and frankly describe their often very difficult journeys.
