Description
Notorious as a manual of sexual instruction, the Kamasutra was written in 3rd-century northern India, when erotic culture lay at the heart of an exquisite civilization. And yet, as travel writer and journalist James McConnachie reveals here, the Kamasutra was always much more than that; it was a passionate portrayal of an ideal lifestyle that was, even then, under threat from the moralists. McConnachie gives us a unique portrait of this sensuous era, evoking the world of the pleasure-seeking men—and women—for whom the book was written. He also explains how Victorian explorer Richard Burton, with the help of a clandestine coterie of sexual iconoclasts, unleashed this extraordinary volume on English society in an attempt to start a revolution.
