    DescriptionSince 1893 Sir Alfred Gilbert's statue of Eros has stood in the centre of Piccadilly Circus in the heart of London's West End. Today, many of the capital's major routes and sites of sociability radiate from Eros's plinth. Like all urban spaces. Piccadilly Circus is a site for the convergence of multiple social relations. It is at once a site of licit and illicit exchange.Sexual Geographies explores the relationship between sexual regimes and identities and the spatial mapping of London at a number of key moments since the eighteenth century. The conceptual basis of this volume is the active role played by the geography of the metropolis in the representations and power relations of modern city life. The themes addressed range from the clandestine marriage market of the early eighteenth century; the production end legal regulation of obscenity in the Victorian city; masculinity and commerce in East London; consumption and racial difference in the metropolis 1935-45; mapping sexual London in the Wolfeden committee of the 1950s; to the sexual topographies produced by the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales.
