Pleasures of the Flesh Sex & Drugs in Colonial New Zealand 1840-1915

Author(s): Stevan Eldred-Grigg

Rare & Collectable | History | Don McMillan


Offers a delightfully fresh analysis of the combination of Christian and non-religious strands in New Zealand social life. It reveals the astonishing doctoring of drugs, from morphine to tea, by capitalist and quack alike, and it gives us throughout a provocative insight into the sexual and drug taking practices that many might prefer to ignore.

Very good copy with dj.
