Abstract: »In Chapter 1 Julie Gammon completes the collection's introductory section with a historiography of research conducted by recent scholars. As Gammon illustrates, the attention to the history of rape that 1970s' feminists began in isolation has since burgeoned into a considerable body of rigorous historical and literary scholarship generated by researchers in a variety of fields. This array of scholarship illustrates not only what the field has accomplished so far, but also the work that remains to be done.« (Source: Anne Greenfield. »Introduction.« Interpreting Sexual Violence, 1660-1800.
