About this book

Lyombe Eko carries out an historical and cultural survey of the regulation of visual depictions of explicit human sexual conduct from their earliest appearance on the clay tablets of the valley of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in ancient Mesopotamia, to the tablet computers of Silicon Valley. The Regulation of Sex-Themed Visual Imagery analyzes the contemporary problem of the applicability of the human right of freedom of expression to explicit imagery in the face of societal interests in the regulation of representations of human sexuality. This book will be of interest to scholars, students, and broad audiences interested in comparative studies in pornography regulation, the history of pornography, the law of pornography and obscenity, and visual culture and history alike.

Reviews

"The Regulation of Sex-Themed Visual Imagery is a fascinating look at the global phenomenon of what becomes later in world history pornography throughout all of time, from prehistory and ancient civilizations in the East and West, through today's Internet and digital media environment. Lyombe Eko's book takes an oversaturated subject - sex and the media - and reinterprets it anew through a critically important global and historical, comparative lens." - Paul Grosswiler, Professor, University of Maine, USA and author of Old New Media: From Oral to Virtual Environments
