"Jeff Weeks is the doyen of history of sexuality in Britain. His 1979 volume Sex, Politics and Society remains a foundational text. Indeed the historian working in this field in modern Britain sometimes feels that any contribution made is no more than a footnote to Weeks or an expansion of points he has already made.Making Sexual History presents a broad range of Week's writings, gathered from a range of material previously published in diverse locations between 1977 and 1999" Lesley A. Hall, Wellcome Library for the History and Understanding of Medicine, Midland History
