Routledge was founded over 150 years ago, primarily as a book publisher. Through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions it has become one of the world's leading publishers of academic books, particularly within the social science and humanities subject areas. It focuses on three academic sectors: undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate; research and reference; and professional education and development.

Routledge publishes in the social science and humanities subject areas. It publishes around 1,000 new books each year and has a backlist of over 7,000 titles in print. Routledge has also developed a journal publishing imprint that has particular emphasis on the humanities, social science, business, management and economics subject areas.

Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature (Aug 2006) - Gaetan Brulotte

Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature (Aug 2006) - Gaetan Brulotte [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK] [in press] 'Thanatos' , 'Necrophilia', 'Erotic Asphyxiation', 'Charles Baudelaire', 'Pétrus Borel', in Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature , ed. Gaëtan Brulotte and John Phillips (London and New York: Taylor and Francis, 2006) The Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature is to be published in three volumes by Routledge. Routledge is the publisher of such highly esteemed reference works as the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy (1998) and two award-winners of the prestigious Dartmouth Medal, Jewish Women in America (1997) and the acclaimed Garland Encyclopedia of World Music series (2002).

The Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature will be a three-volume work and will contain some 850 entries on all aspects of erotic literature. The entries will examine the history of the literature in different countries and languages from classical antiquity to the present day, individual writers from around the world (not all of them necessarily known as specialist writers of erotic literature), significant works, genres and critical approaches, and general themes pertinent to erotic literature (nudity, homoeroticism etc.). The book aims to be international in scope and to reflect current research in the field. It is intended that this work will be a valuable resource for all those studying, researching, or teaching any aspect of erotic literature, in addition to appealing to the general reader with an interest in exploring this subject.

Our definition of erotic literature is quite broad, to encompass all the material we want to include, not just fiction in all genres (novels, poetry, short stories, drama) but also essays, autobiographies, treatises, and sex manuals from different cultures. Our encyclopedia deals with sexually explicit texts which are dominated by sexual representations and suggestions. All types of sexuality are included. Our definition of "erotic" does not necessarily refer to the "arousing" aspect in the readers, which of course is too limiting and confusing. Homosexual, bondage or zoophile literature will not arouse everyone but is part of what we call erotic literature. Most serious scholarly studies published during the last 25 years do call "erotic" literature the type of literature we are interested in covering in our encyclopedia. "Erotic literature" is by far the most commonly used expression. For the sake of unity within the Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature, the judgmental term "pornography" as used in a derogatory way should be avoided except where appropriate (for instance, when referring to court judgments which defined Madame Bovary or Lady Chatterley's Lover as being "pornographic" in their respective time, a classification which of course we reject today).

In the selection of entries for the Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature, the editorial board decided that, given the variety and extent of the subject, the most manageable way to proceed would be to adopt a blend of approaches. It will therefore be helpful for contributors to consider the entry list as a whole and to bear in mind the existence—or non-existence—of articles on related topics, with the aim, as far as possible, of avoiding duplication of information. Thus if an individual has an entry in his/her own right, it will be necessary only to mention that individual in passing in the entry for a particular country or topic, since a cross-reference will direct the reader to the individual entry.

Because the primary reader will be a nonspecialist, bear in mind that as encyclopedia entries—rather than as academic articles—these essays should provide a general introduction to the material. In other words, previous knowledge about the subject cannot be presupposed, and language understood only by specialists should be avoided. Thus, write in a clear and concise prose style (i.e., write as if you were explaining the topic to an undergraduate in a survey course on the subject) and avoid complex terminology and jargon. Please explain potentially unfamiliar terms the first time they are mentioned.
