From the Inside Flap

Sir Richard F. Burton's translation of "The Kama Sutra remains one of the best English interpretations of this early Indian treatise on politics, social customs, love, and intimacy. Its crisp style set a new standard for Sanskrit translation.
"The Kama Sutra stands uniquely as a work of psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, and sexology. It has been a celebrated classic of Indian literature for 1,700 years and a window for the West into the culture and mysticism of the East.
This Modern Library Paperback Classic reprints the authoritative text of Sir Richard F. Burton's 1883 translation. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The book is a good translation of the original text, but beware that there are no illustrations whatsoever! If you are interested in the original text than this is an excellent book. If you are looking for a bedside guide I think you should look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
An education to read how 'ancient' India viewed sexual practices for the benefit of males AND females but also an insight into social mores.
The text is to be used as a tool to benefit those seeking pleasure but also a moral framework for r/ships. True it may puzzle some people, feminists and puritans in particular, for example the manipulation of males to gain female sexual pleasure, but also females towards males for the benefit of material wealth and sexual pleasures.
I was impressed with the easy, graceful transaltion of Burton.
