This book examines the emergence of 'sexuality' as a legitimate cause for a movement, an aspect of personhood, as a political object, as a context of social mobility and a mode of connectedness between people and geographies. 'Sexuality' is, in this sense, a 'modern' phenomenon. Khanna looks equally, and often instead, towards 'sexualness', a neologism that is central to the question of what is at stake in an anthropological project of attempting to make sense of the sexual in non-Euro-North American contexts.
