Description - The Puritan Origins of American Sex by Tracy Fessenden

This provocative work explores the Puritan and Protestant roots of American sexual identity and culture. Offering both historical and interdisciplinary breadth, it charts Protestant influence on the American character from Cotton Mather to Kenneth Starr. From witch trials to pickaxe murderers, from brothels to convents, and from slavery to Toni Morrison's "Paradise" , these essays provide insights into American sexual and religious conventions and beliefs.
