From Publishers Weekly
Harvard scholar Hinsch's careful study belies the official Chinese notion that homosexuality is a recent import from the decadent West. Photos.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.
"This study sheds light on an important aspect of Chinese social history about which virtually nothing has been written previously, and does so with sensitivity, good sense, and grace. It opens entirely new vistas on the history of sexuality. Readers will learn new and unexpected things not only about Chinese history and homosexuality, but about human nature itself."--John Boswell, Yale University

Personally I would like to see an update of this first work or the expansion by another author on other Asian countries like Korea where their homophobia has also prevailed and they have taken to rewriting pages of history.
i agree that this book has its own historic value, but we need to expect more professional works on the field.
actually many good books on the field are in chinese, and they are much more reliable. interested readers should try to approach them.
