Fashioning Adultery book.

David Turner's book takes a very different approach. In the end, Turner maps adultery onto the landscape of politeness and civility. Whereas Gowing starts with the outstretched hand and insinuating finger, Turner begins his analysis with advice literature and the bitter words of tury clerics. He adds an analysis of illicit sex to the large body of literature about the eighteenth century that has argued for the creation of a newly private sphere and, by extension, newly public politics. His arguments are not simple, and he shies away from concluding that actual behavior shifted in response to the changing representations of adultery.
