Summary

Policing Sexuality explores the regulation of sexual behaviour and identity, asking how and why nation-states have sought to influence and control the sexuality of their citizens. Featuring crucial case studies from India, the US, Malaysia, Turkey, and Britain, this engaging comparative account examines the coercive control state authority exerts over sexuality.
