Product Overview

Historical Dictionary of Homosexuality provides a comprehensive survey of same-sex relations from ancient China and Greece to the modern world. It covers the gay rights movement from its origins in 19th-century Europe to the nascent global network. Philosophic treatments, such as natural law and queer theory, along with legal issues and court decisions, are included. The book is global in its coverage of the variety of relations, legal treatment, and social norms concerning same-sex attraction. It includes a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography and cross-referenced dictionary entries on specific countries and regions, influential historical figures, laws that criminalize same-sex sexuality, various historical terms that have been used to refer to aspects of same-sex love, and contemporary events and legal decisions.
