As the first full-length study of the history of sexuality in America, Intimate Matters offered trenchant insights into the sexual behavior of Americans from colonial times to the present. Now, twenty-five years after its first publication, this groundbreaking classic is back in a crucial and updated third edition. With new and extended chapters, D’Emilio and Freedman give us an even deeper understanding of how sexuality has dramatically influenced politics and culture throughout our history and into the present. Hailed by critics for its comprehensive approach and noted by the US Supreme Court in the landmark Laurence v. Texas ruling, this expanded new edition of Intimate Matters details the changes in sexuality and the ongoing growth of individual freedoms in the United States through meticulous research and lucid prose. Praise for earlier editions “The book John D’Emilio 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 Kennedy's written comments, from the information he gleaned from this book.”—Julia Keller, Chicago Tribune “Fascinating. . . . D’Emilio and Freedman marshal 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 . . . D’Emilio and Freedman have surveyed the sexual patterns for an entire nation across four centuries.” —Martin Bauml Duberman, Nation

Over time, sexuality in America has changed dramatically. Frequently redefined and often subject to different systems of regulation, it has been used as a means of control; it has been a way to understand ourselves and others; and it has been at the center of fierce political storms, including some of the most crucial changes in civil rights in the last decade. Edited by Thomas A. Foster, Documenting Intimate Matters features seventy-two documents that collectively highlight the broad diversity inherent in the history of American sexuality. Complementing the third edition of Intimate Matters, by John D’Emilio and Estelle B. Freedman—often hailed as the definitive survey of sexual history in America—the multiple narratives presented by these documents reveal the complexity of this subject in US history. The historical moments captured in this volume will show that, contrary to popular misconception, the history of sexuality is not a simple story of increased freedoms and sexual liberation, but an ongoing struggle between change and continuity.

"By far the best, most detailed, most accurate, most compassionate history of this tragic witch-hunt."--Martin Gardner, THE SKEPTICAL INQUIRER. * "The most ambitious & comprehensive, as well as the most emotionally committed, of all the studies...Pendergrast's book stands out from the others."--Frederick Crews, THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS. * "Pendergrast has written a well-researched & important book, & his findings should rightfully scare all of us...Pendergrast makes a strong case that what began as a way to empower women has now victimized them, isolating them from friends, families & their true memories. This book is sure to spark a long-overdue debate, & it deserves to be on library shelves, right beside THE COURAGE TO HEAL."--Ilene Cooper, BOOKLIST. * An impressive display of scholarship...a comprehensive treatment of the recovered-memories controversy...Pendergrast demonstrates a laudable ability to lay out all sides of the argument."--Daniel L. Schacter, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. "By far the most thorough journalism done on this issue."--Katy Butler, LOS ANGELES TIMES. * "A comprehensive study of a disturbing phenomenon."--Sarah Strickland, THE LONDON OBSERVER. * "Informing Pendergrast's book is a deep sense of social history."--Joseph P. Kahn, THE BOSTON GLOBE.
