About this product
- DescriptionEric Berkowitz evokes the entire sweep of Western sex law, from the savage impalement of an Ancient Mesopotamian adulteress to the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde in 1895 for 'gross indecency'. The cast of Sex and Punishment is as varied as the forms taken by human desire itself: royal mistresses, gay charioteers, medieval transvestites, lonely goat-lovers, prostitutes of all stripes and London rent boys. Each of them had forbidden sex, and each was judged - and justice, as Berkowitz shows - rarely had anything to do with it.
- Author BiographyEric Berkowitz is a lawyer and journalist. He has published investigative pieces in the Los Angeles Times and maintains a public interest law practice, where he represents victims of domestic violence as well as homosexuals seeking political asylum in the United States.
