Policing Sexuality will explore the regulation of sexual behaviour and identity by nation states, and questions how and why states have sought to influence and control the sexuality of its citizens. This unique book will simultaneously introduce the topic and argue for interpretation of state policing of sexuality. The author presents both theoretical and ethnographic literature, distilling common themes and causes and presenting factors that contribute towards a state's desire to control both the sexual behaviour and sexual identity of its citizens, such as the influence of colonialism, class, religion and national identity. Features five crucial case studies from India, Britain, the USA, Malaysia and Turkey that illuminate this fascinating comparative account.
