Some brief overview of this book

The first full length study of the history of sexuality in America, Intimate Matters offers trenchant insights into the sexual behavior of Americans, from colonial times to today. DEmilio and Freedman give us a deeper understanding of how sexuality has dramatically influenced politics and culture throughout our history.

The book John DEmilio co-wrote with Estelle B. Freedman, Intimate Matters, was cited by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy when, writing for a majority of court on July 26, he and his colleagues struck down a Texas law criminalizing sodomy. The decision was widely hailed as a victory for gay rights—and it derived in part, according to Kennedys written comments, from the information he gleaned from DEmilios book, which traces the history of American perspectives on sexual relationships from the nations founding through the present day. The justice mentioned Intimate Matters specifically in the courts decision.—Julia Keller, Chicago Tribune

Fascinating. . . . DEmilio and Freedman marshall their material to chart a gradual but decisive shift in the way Americans have understood sex and its meaning in their lives. —Barbara Ehrenreich, New York Times Book Review

With comprehensiveness and care . . . DEmilio and Freedman have surveyed the sexual patterns for an entire nation across four centuries. —Martin Bauml Duberman, Nation

Intimate Matters is comprehensive, meticulous and intelligent. —Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

This book is remarkable. . . . Intimate Matters is bound to become the definitive survey of American sexual history for years to come. —Roy Porter, Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences

A hard look at the history of American attitudes toward sex.
