"Enlightening, astounding, broad-ranging and rich in detail, exciting and impressively relentless."
-- The Sunday London Times
Author, human rights lawyer, and journalist Eric Berkowitz has spent a decade examining the interplay between sex and law, focusing on the shifting ways people judge and punish the sex of others. He found that being a sex criminal often turns on the bad luck of being caught in the wrong place or decade, belonging to the wrong class or race, or doing something on the wrong side of a passing morality panic. In his two books and many articles on the subject -- covering ancient history to the present day -- Berkowitz tells the astonishing human stories that make sex law.
