The Village Voice. From Publishers Weekly In her frequently provocative odyssey through the 1960s sexual revolution and its aftermath, London-based freelance journalist Grant explores a window of sexual freedom that opened briefly between the advent of the Pill and the AIDS epidemic. She begins by tracing the roots of modern sexual liberation back to the 17th-century English Ranters, anti-Puritan pacifists who viewed erotic freedom as a liberating agent. Wending through hippie communes, open marriages and sexual freedom advocacy groups from London to San Francisco, Grant pays particular attention to the Catholic Church's declining hold on sexual mores, to the women's health movement and to the 1970s conservative backlash. Calling for a renewal of female sexuality that will overturn the assumption of "women's monogamy and men's promiscuity, " she vaguely sketches a sexual future allowing for long-term nonmonogamous relationships that combine love and commitment with casual encounters. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal In certain circles, discussion of the sexual revolution elicits cynical, arched-eyebrowed expressions of "what sexual revolution? " The perceived backlash against women in recent years has caused many to question the success of the sexual revolution that swept the United States and Britian during the past 30 years. Grant attempts to analyze this brief period in our history from a millenarian, socially optimistic perspective. Beginning in the 18th century with the Ranters, an anarchist organization who believed in sex as a liberating agent, Grant leaps enthusiastically ahead two centuries to the hippie idealism of the Sixties counterculture, then moves to the current postmodern obsession with voyeurism. Aside from Grant's failed attempt at a "happy ending, " this work paints a staggering landscape of sexual liberation and, ultimately, repression.
