A Brief History of Sexuality in Premodern Japan

Saeko Kimura  (Author)
A Brief History of Sexuality in Premodern Japan
addresses the system of sexuality in premodern
Japanese society as it emerges from court
literature, picture scrolls and Buddhist art.

Based on the balance of power and productivity,
which derived from a political system utilizing
marriage politics, the premodern system
of sexuality extended beyond the dualism of
homo/heterosexuality. Further issues discussed
are the relations of sexuality to family structure,
desire between mothers and children and
other topics that together paint a compelling
picture of the gender politics and sexuality of
premodern Japan. The book is based on two
prize-winning studies that have previously been
published only in Japanese.
