Eros in Prison: A translation of Karl Plättner’s Eros im Zuchthaus (1929). Plättner was imprisoned for his role in the March Action of 1921 and subsequent “expropriations of the expropriators”. Based on personal experience and interviews with other prisoners, Eros in Prison explores the social consequences of enforced sexual abstinence. While working on the book Plättner advised William Dieterle on the production of the sensational film, Geschlecht in Fesseln (Sex in Chains). Translated and annotated, and with an introductory biography of Karl Plättner, by yours truly. Foreword by the pioneer of sexual science, Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld.
