Analyzing the history of sexuality in the context of the relationship between nationalism and respectability can help us to realize where we stand, how we got there, and how we might change. In this work, George Mosse strives to show how concepts of sexuality haunted bourgeois society and nationalism, to be acknowledged yet curbed, deflected from the physical onto an ideal stereotype of male and female beauty.
