For much of the 20th century, the underground pornography industry - made up of amateurs and hobbyists who created hardcore, explicit "stag films" - went about its business hounded by reformers and law enforcement, from local police departments all the way up to the FBI. Rumors of this illicit activity circulated and became the stuff of urban myth, but this period of pornography history remains murky.

Let's Go Stag! reveals the secrets of this underground world. Using the archives of civic groups, law enforcement, bygone government studies and similarly neglected evidence, archivist Dan Erdman reconstructs the means by which stag films were produced, distributed and exhibited, as well as demonstrate the way in which these practices changed with the times, eventually paving the way for the pornographic explosion of the 1970s and beyond. Let's Go Stag! is sure to point the way for countless future researchers and remain the standard work of history for this era of adult film for a long time to come.

Conclusions and Directions for Further Research
The lowly stag film has long been mired in the longest shadows of film history, shrouded in rumor and innuendo, but Dan Erdman carefully parses myth from evidence about the technological and industrial circulation of all manner of dirty pictures. Drawing extensively from press accounts and law enforcement records, this fascinating new study offers glimpses of illumination that will be essential reading for histories of pornography, amateur filmmaking, and nontheatrical cinema. * David Church, Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Gender Studies, Indiana University, USA * Dan Erdman's bold and meticulously researched Let's Go Stag! pushes past the speculations, false claims, and inaccurate assumptions that have long plagued the study of stag films to deliver-finally-the kind of clarity and grounded histories that have been so desperately needed. This extraordinary book not only opens the door to adult film history's crucial origins, it makes a deeply significant, field-changing contribution while doing it. * Peter Alilunas, Associate Professor, Cinema Studies, University of Oregon, USA, and author of Smutty Little Movies: The Creation and Regulation of Adult Video (2016) *

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
