State Organisations and Men’s Sexuality in the Public Domain 1870–1920

Part of the Explorations in Sociology book series

Abstract

In this chapter I wish to draw together some of the changing historical connections between the modern development of state organisations, that is, organisations that are part of the state, and of men’s sexuality in the public domain. Discussion will focus on events from 1870 to 1920, a period of immense social change, yet paradoxically that which forms the bedrock of contemporary experience.
