It is extensively rich with detailed information and references on the parts of history that it does cover; for the parts that are skipped, there are full books written on those topics to fill the gaps. The author does repeat information a few times, but it is otherwise an eye-opening and detailed enrichment of the history of a prejudice. Well-documented with references quoted straight out of original or translated sources. This should be required reading for every person who voted to ban or rescind gay marriage equality.

No mention of homophobia in Africa, Asia or modern Latin America. I’m not sure how I acquired this book. Since I randomly have a couple of books about homosexuality and history, I can only assume I found them at a used bookstore and wanted to learn more, and now seemed like an okay time to read the biggest one.

I was not aware of the history of homophobia, and actually, the terms sodomy and sodomites were lost on me for quite some time. I certainly learned a lot about the history of homosexuality and homophobia, and there was quite an emphasis on and inclusion I’m not sure how I acquired this book.

I certainly learned a lot about the history of homosexuality and homophobia, and there was quite an emphasis on and inclusion of literature. At times I thought the explanations could be more specific instead of circling around the issue, but I know the book is already quite expansive.

There was a lot of circling around the Oscar Wilde issue, and while I’m pretty certain I remember what happened, more specific information would have been handy.

To see where arguments came from and how we continue to use and hear them every day is fascinating, though. And a bit scary. This was worth the read. Sep 24, Thorn MotherIssues rated it liked it Shelves: There was a lot of stuff I knew already, but it’s so dense and expansive that there were plenty of things I didn’t know.

Homofobia/ Homophobia : Una historia/ a History

Almost nothing about women, but that’s sort of the point. It’s not a complete history Europe didn’t stop having homophobia when Victorian England becomes the focus of the book and England didn’t just magically improve and give way to the US for Stonewall but it’s a good one.

I’m glad I read it. This is the book all those who want to know why gays and lesbians are persecuted should want to read. Persecuting others is in our nature. The book is filled with compassion for gays and lesbians I found refreshing. It may even better than “Homosexuals in Civilization. May 09, Nan rated it really liked it Shelves: It’s a great book of research. The author compiles lots of historic documents and literature all over the world so one can understand how homophobia developed its poisonous claws.

I must confess that sometimes it’s so repetitive, but in the end, it’s worth it. Jun 29, Kathleen O’Neal rated it it was amazing. A fascinating and riveting treatment of the issue of homophobia directed towards men throughout the history of Western civilization. If you read only one book about gay male history, let it be this one. Jul 15, Christina rated it liked it Shelves: The focus is on gay men, which is fine, but i expected this to be an all-embracing term. Still, the book had really useful information.

I highly recommend it. Oct 07, Wasabi rated it liked it. Depressingly real and unattractively revealing. Sep 13, Scott Dow rated it liked it.
