"Containing essays from some of the most insightful scholars and activists working on the front lines, The War on Sex is a vital tool for understanding how the regulation and criminalization of sex relate to our vital struggles in racial, economic, gender, and disability justice. Full of thoughtful, carefully researched essays, The War on Sex will support readers in classrooms and social movements to understand and strategize about the relationships among sex, criminalization, poverty, disability, and contemporary politics. We need this book right now." — Dean Spade, author of, Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law
"Recent events just keep confirming, all too dismally, that the issues this collection takes up—from sex offender registries and sex trafficking to HIV in public health—link together as a major front of struggle in our time, often far from public view. Questioning some of the narratives of progress that are so widely echoed in the media and popular consciousness, The War on Sex will immediately meet the needs of academics and activists alike." — Michael Warner, author of, Publics and Counterpublics
