KIRKUS REVIEW

Some 300 photographs (32 in color) of Eastern sculpture, bas-relief, painting, and prints on sexual subjects, further illuminated by Rawson's scholarly (but readable) text. Rawson, the curator of the Gulbenkian Museum of Oriental Art at the University of Durham in England, deals separately with the art of India, the Islamic countries, China and Japan.
