This is a hugely important book and it has provoked much debate. The reviews were magnificent: 'Davidson, with his wit, range and learning is able to admit honestly the limitations of historical understanding, while never being less than fascinating' Independent on Sunday 'James Davidson's revisionist account emerges with winning charm from the bloodshed... a landmark in gay studies' Time Out 'Massively informed and informative ... (an) outstanding study' Spectator 'A highly erudite work of social and cultural history, astonishingly wide-ranging an extraordinary achievement, ranging far and wide unpredictable and lateral-thinking superb' Guardian 'Familiar in some respects and radically new ... with witty diversions ... quite an achievement' Independent 'This is an excellent book on an important subject' Literary Review
