9780300093025: Bisexuality in the Ancient World

In this readable and thought-provoking history of bisexuality in the classical age, Eva Cantarella draws on the full range of sources―from legal texts, inscriptions, and medical documents to poetry and philosophical literature―to reconstruct and compare the bisexual cultures of Athens and Rome.
 Reviews of the earlier edition:
 “Cantarella presents the ancient evidence in a straightforward fashion, draws insightful comparisons between heterosexuality and homosexuality, and elucidates the larger cultural context of erotic experience. With its wide scope the book speaks to the classicist, the layman with an interest in antiquity, the student of sexuality, and even to the unabashed seeker of piquant anecdotes.”
―John F. Makowski, Classical Journal
“An important study that is destined to take its place next to the classic works of Foucault and Pomeroy.”―Alan Mendelson, History: Reviews of New Books
“Offers a valuable, close-in reassessment of intricate evidence, freshly researched, readable, and open-minded.”―Alan Sinfield, Gay Times
“This is a book I recommend for all students of sexology.”―Milton Diamond, Journal of Psychology & Human Sexuality
“Easily the best book on the topic.”―John Buckler, Historian

Friedman, Psychoanalytic Quarterly "A sexological tour de force. . . . Among students and professionals with even a minimum of sexological curiosity, it will strike a new spark of enlightenment."—John Money, Ph.D., Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease "Cantarella's work, based on classical sources, points up the multiplicity of possible social and cultural solutions to the underlying problem of bisexual trends in men. . . . [It] shows us that every society struggles to formulate ways in which order and complexity of human sexuality and thus places our current American efforts within a far larger perspective of human history."—Jessica P. Byrne, M.D., Psychoanalytic Books: A Quarterly Journal of Reviews "Eva Cantarella's cultural history of bisexuality in the ancient world . . . is an intriguing and accessible study that draws upon a wide range of primary texts and sources. . . . A fascinating account of the multi- layered nature of bisexuality in ancient times."—Paul Johnson, Pink Paper "Ambitious, learned, and thought-provoking. . . . The author displays an impressive command of a wide range of primary and secondary sources, and writes with blessed clarity."—Charles C. Chiasson, Southern Humanities Review
