This book examines the emergence of ‘sexuality’ as a legitimate cause for a movement, an aspect of personhood, a political object, a context of social mobility and a mode of connectedness between people and geographies. ‘Sexuality’ is, in this sense, a ‘modern’ phenomenon. Khanna offers a new reading of sexuality, insisting instead towards ‘sexualness’, a neologism that is central to the question of what is at stake in an anthropological project attempting to make sense of the sexual in non-Euro-North American contexts.--Publisher's website.
