Early New Zealand colonists felt relatively unrestrained, both legally and socially, by many of the moral standards of the mother country. Maoris knew little of them and cared even less.Not that New Zealand was a sensual paradise. Society encouraged its men in the pursuit of pleasure but adultery, prostitution, incest, alcoholism and sexual ignorance brought misery to many people and often made victims of colonial women. The rise of the puritan movement is frequently thought to have largely eliminated the licentiousness of the earlier period, but this book argues that this was not so. The puritans were vigorous propagandists but they enjoyed only limited success against the vested interests of the liquour trade, the social customs of the majority of New Zealanders and, most significantly, the emerging modern lifestyles of the twentieth century. This offeres an analysis of the combination of Christian and non-religious strands in our social life.

Sex and Drugs Before the Rock ’n’ Rollis a fascinating volume that presents an engaging overview of what it was like to be young and male in the Dutch Golden Age. Here, well-known cohorts of Rembrandt are examined for the ways in which they expressed themselves by defying conservative values and norms. This study reveals how these young men rebelled, breaking from previous generations: letting their hair grow long, wearing colorful clothing, drinking excessively, challenging city guards, being promiscuous, smoking, and singing lewd songs. Cogently argued, this study paints a compelling portrait of the youth culture of the Dutch Golden Age, at a time when the rising popularity of print made dissemination of new cultural ideas possible, while rising incomes and liberal attitudes created a generation of men behaving badly.
