Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


About the book: Under the banner of morality and public health were 1870-1940 the "intimate" and the "private" to the subject of broad social reform movements. The book shows how in these decades developed an intense global campaign against alcohol, drugs, sexually transmitted diseases and sexual deviance. The motives of morality reformers and their organizational infrastructure shed new light on global integration processes, on the pattern of colonial rule and the expansion of the "morality Empire".
