Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Investigating same-sex relationships and attitudes toward homosexuality throughout history and in various regions of the world, "this ground-breaking anthology suggests that definitions of 'normal' sexuality differ widely from one culture to the next," PW reported.
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

". . . Homosexuality is not merely a personal characteristic to be alternately ignored or celebrated, as some historians have assumed, but a significant influence on the lives of individuals and on patterns of cultural organizations in ways historians need to acknowledge." This anthology redresses this influence in 30 essays of the last decade by prominent gay historians. Previously published pieces have been revised, and ten completely new essays were commissioned. The juxtaposition of diverse perspectives and research crossing boundaries of race, gender, culture, and time encourages a lively dialogue. Highly recommended for history collections, and especially gay studies.
- James E. Van Buskirk, Acad. of Art Coll. Lib., San Francisco

Format: Paperback
This book is chockful of great monographs on gay and lesbian history. After a world-shaking introduction by all three editors, the book offers monographs from many periods in history. And not only is Western history profiled--there is also Asian gay history, and other non-European monographs as well. Everything is scholarly, and well-documented, and some of the information that you read in here is incredibly surprising! I am glad that a book like this finally exists, and, as a historian myself, know from this book that history is changing for the better by including the gay population and other minorities.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By othoniaboys on September 13, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is a showcase of gay/lesbian scholarship with regard to history and sociology. It suffers somewhat, however, from an insular viewpoint. There are no articles on Islamic societies, an enormous lacuna for which there can be no excuse. There are no articles on pederasty in the modern Western world, while Halperin seems to be saying that there is no moral difference between pederasty and burglary (p.50). The only article on Latin America is a piece of communist apologetics by Lourdes Arguelles and B. Ruby Rich, and although the facts may be true, the interpretation is slanted.
