Summary: In the raucous decade following World War I, newly blurred boundaries between male and female created fears among the French that theirs was becoming a civilization without sexes.

Mary Louise Roberts examines how in these debates French society came to grips with the catastrophic h ...show moreorrors of the Great War. In sources as diverse as parliamentary records, newspaper articles, novels, medical texts, writings on sexology, and vocational literature, Roberts discovers a central question: how to come to terms with rapid economic, social, and cultural change and articulate a new order of social relationships.

Through these debates, Roberts locates the seeds of actual change.
