Think Differently                  

Theorizing the Sexual Child in Modernity





by R. Danielle Egan and Gail Hawkes, hardcover, 204 pages

   This ground-breaking work provides the first history of ideas about the sexual child in modernity. Beginning with twenty-first century panics about sexualization, the authors address why the sexual child excites such powerful emotions in the Anglophone west.  Historical analysis of the past two centuries offers some challenging and insightful answers. Drawing on a wide range of different materials from enlightenment philosophy, medicine, social purity sexual hygiene, psychoanalysis and child development, this book illustrates that current panics have a consistent and fascinating history. The authors strive to go beyond the current impasse of fear and anxiety.
