Children and Sexuality discusses the historical relationship between children and sexuality, and the changing views of child-adult relations in the sexual domain, in a series of case studies extending from the Greeks to the Great War. Chapters provide highly original interpretations of these cases that challenge the received views of children and sexuality, as well as traditional disciplinary conventions. While the book is firmly grounded in history and literature, biography and social custom, it also engages with current debates in literary and cultural history; as well as the new history and anthropology of childhood
