[nice clean tight copy with just a trace of shelfwear; jacket shows a little surface wear, minor soiling]. "Throughout history man has been preoccupied with his penis -- the emblem of and sometimes instrument for his power and dominance, the agent of his keenest physical pleasure, and the source of his most unremitting anxiety. His conflicting emotions regarding his penis have profoundly affected the way in which man has organized his civilization, ordered his institutions, interacted with both women and other men, and expressed himself in literature and art. [This book] is a provocative, entertaining, and utterly fascinating study of what may be mankind's greatest preoccupation."
