  • The Challenges of Including Sexual Violence and Transgressive Love in
           Historical Writing on World War II and the Holocaust
    • Abstract: As I ponder how to introduce a collection of essays exploring the wide range of sexual contacts made possible for the adventurous or unleashed upon the unwilling during World War II, I cannot help but remember the reactions of senior scholars to such subjects in the days of my historical apprenticeship. Having just begun the research for my PhD dissertation in Berlin in the summer of 1993, I was seeking scholarly contacts and was introduced to one of the reigning doyens of German history, a professor at the Free University of Berlin. This person, whose identity is not important for my purposes, told me that I had just missed a visit from American historian of Germany Atina Grossmann. Sadly, my would-be ... Read More

  • Reframing Sexual Violence as a Weapon and Strategy of War: The Case of the
           German Wehrmacht during the War and Genocide in the Soviet Union,
           1941–1944
    • Abstract: When I presented my research on sexual practices, including sexual violence, by German soldiers during the war of annihilation at a public event in the spring of 2009, a man in the audience—who, as I later learned, had survived the Holocaust as a child—asked me if the Nazis had implemented rape as a strategy. I answered cautiously that the evidence suggested that the perpetration of this form of violence was pervasive during all stages of the war and the genocide in the Soviet Union, but I was not sure if the term “strategy” could be applied. He was clearly disappointed. Since then, the question of whether sexual violence was used as a strategy, tactic, or weapon in the German warfare and the ... Read More

  • The Leroy Henry Case: Sexual Violence and Allied Relations in Great
           Britain, 1944
    • Abstract: Around midnight on 5 May 1944 on the outskirts of Bath, England, a married couple was awoken by a tapping on their bedroom window. Looking out, they saw a black American soldier at their front door. His name was Leroy Henry, and he was a thirty-year-old truck driver from St. Louis, Missouri.1 Like millions of other GIs at the time, Henry was stationed in England awaiting the invasion in France. That night, he claimed to be lost and asked the couple if they could help guide him back to camp. The wife, Irene Maude Lilley, answered the door, then accompanied the soldier down the road, supposedly to show him the way. When she did not return, her husband went out in search of her and found her in a ditch by the ... Read More

  • Interracial Relationships and the “Brown Baby Question”: Black GIs,
           White British Women, and Their Mixed-Race Offspring in World War II
    • Abstract: Sergeant Lomax, an African American soldier, arrived back in Ohio at the end of the Second World War; he had been stationed in England for much of his time away. He had a confession to make to his wife, Betty. In February 1949 she recounted their exchange to the Pittsburgh Courier, a leading black American newspaper: “He said: ‘I’ve been gone a long time . . . about three years . . . that’s a long time for a fellow to be away from his wife. In the meantime I met a girl. She was nice, she was friendly, and Betty, I was very lonesome, so . . . what I’m trying to say is that there’s to be a child. Betty, you don’t have to answer right away, but would you agree to take this child'’”1 The boy had been born in ... Read More

  • Female Sexual Desire and Male Honor: German Women’s Illicit Love Affairs
           with Prisoners of War during the Second World War
    • Abstract: In April 1941 Josef Bartl wrote to his young wife, Andrea, who was remanded in custody awaiting trial for repeated “forbidden contacts with a prisoner of war”: There is not much else to say since you will know yourself that you can never again be part of my life after your shameful behavior. I wanted to do everything to make you happy but you deceived me horribly. You made me a broken man. . . . We will divorce and then you can carry on with your dissolute life. As a German soldier I cannot belong to a wife who has given herself to prisoners. I hope that the court will find you alone guilty for our divorce and you, shameless woman, will not receive a penny from me. . . . I want you to stop your stupid ... Read More

  • Making Sense of a Rape Photograph: Sexual Violence as Social Performance
           on the Eastern Front, 1939–1944
    • Abstract: This article begins with A disturbing image that has a no-less-unsettling provenance. It shows a group of fifteen young German soldiers standing in a semicircle, carousing and laughing as one of their comrades emulates a sex act with an unidentified woman who may or may not be dead. The laughter of his comrades suggests approval for the actions of the man on the ground. Although it is not clear if the photograph depicts an act of actual rape, its aftermath, or mere mimicry, what is certain is that the depicted scene ascribes the woman only one function: she is an object of amusement that mediates coercion and asymmetric power relations.1 Undated photo in the collection of the National Archives of ...

  • Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham by Emily Bingham
           (review)
    • Abstract: From her birth in 1901 until her death in 1968, socialite Henrietta Bingham rode the tides of the twentieth century’s social changes: sordid Faulknerian tragedy in a wealthy Progressive Era Kentucky family; a stint as a Smith College flapper; Jazz Age decadence in New York City and with the Bloomsbury Group across England; participation in the development of psychoanalysis; and ultimately, a long, sad decline as her desires for women fell under the lens of Cold War era pathologization, driving her into alcoholism and despair. Irrepressible is a family story written from the inside—which turns out to be the only way it was possible to write. For author Emily Bingham, Henrietta was an eccentric great-aunt who ... Read More

  • The Corrigible and the Incorrigible: Science, Medicine, and the Convict in
           Twentieth-Century Germany by Greg Eghigian (review)
    • Abstract: Historical studies of the prison system in Germany have so far overwhelmingly focused on the premodern period and the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Against this background, the new book by Greg Eghigian, professor of modern history at Pennsylvania State University, is all the more welcome, as he not only builds upon this previous scholarship, extending its findings into the twentieth century and into the present, but also sheds new light on key aspects of this story, in particular with regard to questions of continuity and discontinuity. This is an innovative book, as its focus is less on the much-researched practices of incarceration than on the scientific, criminal, and legal discourses that ... Read More

  • Sex Crimes in the Fifties by Lisa Featherstone, Amanda Kaladelfos (review)
    • Abstract: The history of sexuality is inextricably linked to the history of the control of sexual crimes. Scholars of the discipline have always relied on reports of the policing of illegal sexual activities, the evidence offered in court, the associated medical and psychiatric opinions over what constituted sexual aberrations or illegal sexual contact, and the treatments of sex offenders. Following in this rich tradition, Australian sexual history is greatly enriched by Lisa Featherstone and Amanda Kaladelfos’s excellent new survey of sex crimes during a particularly conservative period notorious for the mistreatment of minorities and the protection of narrow white masculine interests. The breadth of their work ... Read More

  • Cold War Freud: Psychoanalysis in an Age of Catastrophes by Dagmar Herzog
           (review)
    • Abstract: At the heart of Dagmar Herzog’s new book is a question central to the history of sexuality as a scholarly field: What is the relationship between sexuality and other spheres of life such as politics and the economy' Cold War Freud traces how a wide range of those who have engaged with psychoanalytic ideas since 1945—as advocates or as critics—have thought about that question. The book consists essentially of six case studies (in rough chronological order but often overlapping in time), each of which places psychoanalytic thought in the broader context of the political and intellectual development of a particular place and time. Taken together, these chapters offer a coherent, gripping, and often surprising ... Read More

  • Bad Girls: Young Women, Sex and Rebellion before the Sixties by Amanda H.
           Littauer (review)
    • Abstract: Who would not buy a book about girls in search of hot sex' Illustrated with colorful evidence about the American girls who decided to “do it,” girls who found sex too exciting not to pursue in the decades before the 1960s counterculture, Bad Girls does not disappoint. As Amanda Littauer writes in this lively, well-researched book, the “victory girls,” “B-girls,” lesbians, and ordinary teenagers of the 1940s and 1950s set the stage for the sexual revolution. Bad Girls is also an account of female sexual courage: if girls couldn’t get what they wanted at home, they often hit the road, leaving school, parents, community, and sometimes a young husband behind. The sexual revolution is often said to ... Read More

  • Sexual Myths of Modernity: Sadism, Masochism and Historical Teleology by
           Alison Moore (review)
    • Abstract: In this groundbreaking and eminently readable study, Alison Moore addresses the ways in which certain nonnormative sexual modalities—here the fantasies and practices subsumed under the umbrella term “sadomasochism”—have been used to shore up a dominant mythic narrative of historical progress, precisely by being made to stand in for political degeneration or “barbarism.” In examining the alignment at various historical moments between sadism and political violence (Nazism in particular), Moore expertly demonstrates the workings of an ideological “attempt to bind sexual practices to a vision of historical teleology or social evolution” (1) throughout modernity and its afterlives. The methodological ... Read More

    • Abstract: A collection of essays previously published in scholarly journals and collections, this attractively designed volume gives general readers access to the sweep of Julie Peakman’s research on sexual practices and attitudes in the eighteenth century. Wishing “to avoid self-indulgent over-theorizing or using convoluted language” (xvi), she provides succinct explanations of the analytical frameworks employed by other scholars on whose work she draws and bases most of these studies on eighteenth-century erotica. Researchers and teachers of the history of sexuality should also find inspiration for further inquiries in contemplating the patterns that recur in the various forms of sexual writing during this period. ...

  • Sexual States: Governance and the Struggle over the Antisodomy Law in
           India by Jyoti Puri (review)
    • Abstract: One might think Jyoti Puri’s superb and meticulous investigation of anti-sodomy law in India—Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, a stubbornly intractable colonial relic—is peculiarly bookended. The author initiates her study with the 2005 regional state prohibition on dance bars in Maharashtra, India (“where fully clothed groups of women danced to popular Hindi film songs for a male clientele”) and concludes with ruminations on the 2013 Russian law enacted against “gay propaganda” (4, 162). In the concluding chapter, Puri briefly investigates highly publicized incidents of sexual violence in India as well as the sexual politics that underlie xenophobic alarmism around Bangladeshi migration to Delhi. Yet ... Read More

  • Brother-Making in Late Antiquity and Byzantium: Monks, Laymen and
           Christian Ritual by Claudia Rapp (review)
    • Abstract: In this important book, Claudia Rapp traces the development of the Byzantine rite of adelphopoiesis, or brother-making, which first appeared in the eighth century CE and was later common in the Byzantine Empire and persisted beyond the end of the empire in eastern Europe up until the twentieth century. Adelphopoiesis was a ceremony performed in church via prayers and ritual to unite two people into a sibling-like relationship. We know of the rite through references to it in medieval histories and other records and to many examples of prayers for use in liturgies. Rapp sees adelphopoiesis as both a religious act and something “extremely malleable to people’s needs” (247), and she describes how it was used to ... Read More

  • The 4-H Harvest: Sexuality and the State in Rural America by Gabriel N.
           Rosenberg (review)
    • Abstract: Gabriel Rosenberg’s The 4-H Harvest: Sexuality and the State in Rural America is the latest work in a growing field of scholarship that investigates the history of sexuality in nonmetropolitan areas. Despite the incredible growth and diversity of this literature since the publication of John Howard’s Men Like That in 2000, Rosenberg’s book highlights that there is still much we do not yet know and many more promising areas of research.1 The 4-H organization might not seem to be a natural object of analysis for historians of sexuality, but Rosenberg’s volume illustrates convincingly that 4-H is best understood as a biopolitical organization, placing it firmly in the wheel-house of scholars of sexuality. ...

  • Gender in Medieval Culture by Michelle M. Sauer (review)
    • Abstract: Michelle M. Sauer, professor in the Department of English at the University of North Dakota, wrote Gender in Medieval Culture as an introduction to gender in the Middle Ages, specifically, to discourses, beliefs, and customs associated with gender, gender roles, sex, and sexuality. Despite the title of the book, Sauer advises readers that her ambition is to focus on postconquest England (from the mid-eleventh to the fifteenth century). However, this geographic frame varies from chapter to chapter, and despite the similarities of intellectual discourses on gender throughout western Europe, this geographic inconsistency might mislead students unaware of the existence of various practices, legal frames, and ...

  • Masculinity, Class and Same-Sex Desire in Industrial England, 1895–1957
           by Helen Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Helen Smith begins her engaging book with an anecdote about her grandparents. Her grandmother had arrived at a South Yorkshire dance hall, sometime in the late 1940s, on the arm of Alf, her grandfather’s best friend. But by the end of the evening her grandparents had fallen for each other. Alf didn’t mind; he was gay and accepted as such by his circle of working-class mates. Smith’s study is an exploration into the larger social context for this event. Was this an isolated instance of acceptance, or was it indicative of a much broader tolerance toward queer sex and relationships in working-class communities in the industrial North' Smith diligently sifted through court records, provincial newspapers, oral ...

  • Measuring Manhood: Race and the Science of Masculinity, 1830–1934 by
           Melissa N. Stein (review)
    • Abstract: In this history of ethnology, sexology, and related medicoscientific fields of inquiry in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century America, Melissa N. Stein seeks to situate the (mostly) white men who published these studies in their social and political context. The result is a particularly rich intellectual history that skillfully demonstrates how enmeshed these scientists were in controversies over slavery, African American citizenship, and lynching. Placing antebellum debates about whether or not whites and blacks were separate species alongside late nineteenth-century debates over the causes of sexual “inversion” could at first seem like a stretch. Indeed, as Stein points out, few scholars of the history ... Read More

           Jürgen Martschukat (review)
    • Abstract: In their edited collection race&sex: Eine Geschichte der Neuzeit, Olaf Stieglitz and Jürgen Martschukat offer an innovative examination of the “history of the modern” era by placing race and sex decisively at the center of what historians outside of Germany simply call modern history. By claiming that sex was integral to the formation of the modern nation-state and that “the meaning of sex cannot be adequately understood without including the force of race,” Stieglitz and Martschukat arrive at the amalgam “race&sex” (spelled without spaces to emphasize the impossibility of separating the two terms) as the most useful concept with which to analyze modernity (15). Such a project is not without its potential ... Read More

  • American Child Bride: A History of Minors and Marriage in the United
           States by Nicholas L. Syrett (review)
    • Abstract: Nicholas L. Syrett’s new book, American Child Bride: A History of Minors and Marriage in the United States, takes a fascinating topic and uses it to present significant insights into the history of childhood, coverture, parental rights, sexuality, eugenics, and much more in the history of American families. While Syrett’s astute analysis of these broader issues is an important part of the book’s contribution, we also get rich microhistories of the motivations of individual child brides, their husbands, and their parents. In sum, the book marvelously adds to our understanding of the history of marriage, family, and sexuality. Syrett begins the book in early America when the law still enforced men’s ... Read More

  • Stormtrooper Families: Homosexuality and Community in the Early Nazi
           Movement by Andrew Wackerfuss (review)
    • Abstract: “Because the role of homosexuality in fascism is very ambiguous and complicated and has been subject to all kinds of homophobic projection,” observes the influential queer theorist Judith Halberstam in a recent essay, “we often prefer to talk about the persecution of gays by Nazis, leaving aside the question of their collaboration in the regime.”1 This is one of the central questions that the historian Andrew Wackerfuss takes on in his book Stormtrooper Families, a fascinating local study of the Nazi SA in the northern city of Hamburg. The book goes a long way in explaining the appeal of the Nazi Party for young Germans during the 1920s and early 1930s. As Wackerfuss puts it, “Nazi sexuality combined with ... Read More
