Abstract:

This study explores the role of Venereal Disease in shaping perceptions of sexuality in twentieth-century Scotland, and in defining the response of the modern State to patterns of sexual behaviour. It examines how civic, medical and political authorities reacted to the 'Hideous Scourge' in peace and war, and focuses in particular on the ways in which VD discourse both reflected and informed social relationships of class, generation and gender. This book also highlights the campaign in Scotland for legal controls over those suffering from VD, and the enduring problem, resurrected by the threat of AIDS, of balancing the demands of public health against those of civil liberties in the regulation of 'dangerous sexualities'.
