Excerpt from A Boy's Control and Self-Expression: Illustrated With About 250 Figs It is supposed that a book should keep within reach, or at least within sight, of a single point, as anyone walking round St. Mary's of the Scilly Isles usually keeps within sight of the simple-looking Marconi Station. My book usually keeps within sight of a single idea, which I will express in a somewhat long sentence. Fairly considering all that I know now, what training of body and mind should I choose if I were allowed to become a boy again, and if I wanted to prevent the most serious mistakes as easily as possible and with as little attention to them as possible, so as to avoid morbidness or crankiness or priggishness? I must have read quite a hundred and fifty books and papers on the subject of purity for boys, but not one of them answered my question. Almost every one-there were, of course, some exceptions - brought before me a picture of an immaculate perfection, clothed in black, standing on an inaccessible platform of genteel propriety, and, as a rule, hopelessly out of touch with the real boy, as we see him in life and in such books as "The Golden Age," "The Human Boy," "Stalky and Co.," and "Vice-Versa."

Shakespeare and the Origins of English

What existed before there was a subject known as English? How did English eventually come about? Focusing specifically on Shakespeare's role in the origins of the subject, Rhodes addresses the evolution of English from the early modern period up to the late eighteenth century. He deals with the kinds of literary and educational practices that would have formed Shakespeare's experience and shaped his work and traces the origins of English in certain aspects of the educational regime that existed before English literature became an established part of the curriculum. Rhodes then presents Shakespeare both as a product of Renaissance rhetorical teaching and as an agent of the transformation of rhetoric in the eighteenth century into the subject that emerged as the modern study of English. By transferring terms from contemporary disciplines, such as 'media studies' and 'creative writing', or the technology of computing, to earlier cultural contexts Rhodes aims both to invite further reflection on the nature of the practices themselves, and also to offer new ways of thinking about their relationship to the discipline of English. Shakespeare and the Origins of English attempts not only an explanation of where English came from, but suggests how some of the things that we do now in the name of 'English' might usefully be understood in a wider historical perspective. By extending our view of its past, we may achieve a clearer view of its future.

The secret vice

Masturbation in Victorian fiction and medical culture

The secret vice: Masturbation in Victorian fiction and medical culture provides a unique consideration of writings on self-abuse in the long nineteenth century. The book examines the discourse on masturbation in medical works by English, Continental and American practitioners and demonstrates the influence and impact of these writings, not only on Victorian pornography but also in the creation of fictional characters by canonical authors such as Bram Stoker, J. S. Le Fanu, Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde. The book also features the first detailed and balanced study of the largely overlooked literature on masturbation as it pertains to women in clinical and popular medical works aimed at the female reader. Mason concludes with a consideration of the way the distinctly Victorian discourse on masturbation has persisted into the late-twentieth and twenty-first centuries with particular reference to Willy Russell’s tragic-comic novel, The Wrong Boy (2000) and to the construction of ‘Victorian Dad’, a character featured in the adult comic, Viz.

Diet for a Large Planet

Industrial Britain, Food Systems, and World Ecology

We are facing a world food crisis of unparalleled proportions. Our reliance on unsustainable dietary choices and agricultural systems is causing problems both for human health and the health of our planet. Solutions from lab-grown food to vegan diets to strictly local food consumption are often discussed, but a central question remains: how did we get to this point? In Diet for a Large Planet, Chris Otter goes back to the late eighteenth century in Britain, where the diet heavy in meat, wheat, and sugar was developing. As Britain underwent steady growth, urbanization, industrialization, and economic expansion, the nation altered its food choices, shifting away from locally produced plant-based nutrition. This new diet, rich in animal proteins and refined carbohydrates, made people taller and stronger, but it led to new types of health problems. Its production also relied on far greater acreage than Britain itself, forcing the nation to become more dependent on global resources. Otter shows how this issue expands beyond Britain, looking at the global effects of large agro-food systems that require more resources than our planet can sustain. This comprehensive history helps us understand how the British played a significant role in making red meat, white bread, and sugar the diet of choice—linked to wealth, luxury, and power—and shows how dietary choices connect to the pressing issues of climate change and food supply.

Sexed (Sex’d) - Hardwired by Nature –Evolving by Choice is a first of a kind book, about the sexual hardwiring of the heterosexual male. While shining a spotlight on some of the predicaments of heterosexual male sexuality, it takes a deep archeological dive into the meeting place of sex, consciousness, biology and intimacy .In so doing it offers a granular look at the impact of our sexual hardwiring on our lived experience as men, far beyond comedy and caricature or the superficial conversations society has thus far offered us. Sexed – offered both as a reference for therapists and a personal study guide for the curious and evolving, and brings the reader closer to a more crystalized sense of sexual self-agency, access to intimacy and the opportunity to continue to bring the best possible version of himself to his relationship and the world. Of course women readers can benefit too by gaining insight into the development and inner workings of the heterosexual man’s mind and a broader understanding as to why the hardwiring and its impact has proven to be somewhat trans historical and transcultural .

James Joyce, Sexuality and Social Purity

In James Joyce, Sexuality and Social Purity, Katherine Mullin offers a richly detailed account of Joyce's lifelong battle against censorship. Through prodigious archival research, Mullin shows Joyce responding to Edwardian ideologies of social purity by accentuating the 'contentious' or 'offensive' elements in his work. Ulysses, A Portrait and Dubliners each meticulously subvert purity discourse. This important and highly original book will change the way Joyce is read and offers crucial insights into the sexual politics of Modernism.

My primary reason for writing this book is, if I can’t stand and help my own community, why should I expect anyone else to do so? I also believe that the primary reason behind the enormous number of black men lacking the ability to function in this society is due to the lack of progressive culture, the lack of structure and fathers who have been removed from the family for one reason or another.
