9780500287071: Gay Life and Culture: A World History

Now available in paperback, 'Gay Life and Culture' is a comprehensive, global account of gay history. It is spectacularly illustrated throughout and includes an extensive selection of images, many of them only recently recovered. From Theocritus' verses to Queer as Folk, from the berdaches of North America to the boy-wives of Aboriginal Australia, this extraordinarily wideranging book illustrates both the commonality of love and lust, and the various ways in which such desires have been constructed through the ages.

Review:

"This lushly illustrated encyclopedia of gay life, culture, and the visual arts is a welcome addition to the ever-popular publishing phenomenon of general art history books..." "This volume should be commended for including a significant number of pages on AIDS and is invaluable to both the lay reader and well as the academic historian." -- Dec06 ART & UNDERSTANDING MAGAZINE

"...a sweeping narrative, but also inlcudes many of the nuances and complexities that the subject needs." "...it is both a scholarly and lusciously presented popular work..." "...this book is indeed an important one." -- 10/28/06 FINANCIAL TIMES

"...meticulously annotated...without a dull page in the lot." -- 10/19/06 ECHO MAGAZINE

"Editor Robert Alrich's tome reports on queer love from 1700 B.C. to today, with gorgeous (and rare) illustrations." -- Nov06 TIME OUT NEW YORK

"Gay Life and Culture deserves to read and should have a place on every bookshelf." 3/4 page with two photos -- Dec06 METROSOURCE NY
