That being said, the book gives a well-researched and detailed account of homosexuality from ancient Mesopotamia to the modern world. The writer shows that homosexuality was not only condoned in many ancient cultures, but fully integrated into the social structure. And while the author fails to draw any conclusion (this being an academic work, I believe Nissinen thought it best to just put the facts out there and let the reader decide), it is well worth reading and I think an important contribution to the literature on GLBT studies.
