This is an important contribution to the sexual history of Britain. This valuable study fills a gap in our understanding of modern Scottish, and British, society, providing as it does a vital perspective on Scotland's sexual history and its political and social context. It is unique in exploring the period from 1950 to 1980, covering the immediate post-war and Scotland's sexual 'coming-of-age'. It charts a steady political growth from a deeply moralistic policy framework towards a less judgmental, global and scientific context. Davidson and Davis lead us through the Scottish sexual landscape leading up to the global crisis of HIV/AIDS, analysing post-war state policy towards issues such as abortion, family planning, homosexuality, pornography, prostitution, sex education and sexual heath. Policy-makers, social historians, teachers and students alike will find this an invaluable resource on the study of sexuality and policy-making in modern society.
