"the single most important contribution to the interpretation of gay history in nearly a decade."
"the most significant study of Greek homosexuality since the pioneering work of K.J. Dover...This rich and stimulating book has something to offer to the general reader of Homer and Plato as well as to the specialized theorist of human sexuality. Halperin's research is very much on the cutting edge of classical studies and is sure to be an influence in the field for years to come.."
-"Classical World
"all very fine essays, characterized by meticulous scholarship and a great deal of fresh insight."
-"Journal of the History of Sexuality
"Carries out, with careful scholarly arguments and a judicious, wide-ranging use of evidence, the project Foucault mapped out in the second volume of his "History of Sexuality . . . Clear and incisive, these essays are probably the best available introduction for the general reader to the issues raised by Foucault's work."
-Martha Nussbaum, "TLS
"[Halperin] is a brilliant polemicist . . . it is hard to imagine a more eloquent and well-informed presentation of his point of view. And the passion and dash of his prose serve to remind us that what is in question is not only theory but the beliefs and behaviors of real human beings."
-Mark Golden, "Classical Views


Ancient Greece is often claimed to be the fountainhead of Western civilization. But would we really recognize ourselves in the ancient Greeks, if we could get a good look at them? Examining love, sex, and gender in the ancient Greek world, David Halperin assembles a fascinating array of evidence in order to document the existence, in ancient Greece, of a radically unfamiliar set of attitudes and behaviours, institutions and social practices. Halperin provides detailed discussions of paederasty, male prostitution, heroic comradeship, and the use of woman' as a symbolic means of communication between men in classical Athens. Arguing that the modern concept of homosexuality' is an inadequate tool for the interpretation of these features of sexual life in antiquity, Halperin offers an alternative account that accords greater prominence to the indigenous terms in which sexual experiences were constituted in the ancient Mediterranean world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Solid Compendium 5. Februar 2002
Von M. Blancett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This was given to me by a friend. I have found it to be indespensible in my readings as a great place to start looking for information on Greek Homosexuality. The bibliography is top-notch. Highly recommended for any historian or philosopher of the Greek era, and any gay person interested in the history of homosexuality.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A classic gay studies text! You must buy it. 13. September 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a canonical gay studies text. Halperin is a respected academic in both the classics and gay studies. The term "homosexuality" was invented a little over a century ago. Thus, anything before that time has to be analyzed in perspective. Halperin looks at the classic writings of ancient Greek "homosexuals" and puts them into deep analysis. Halperin avoids a lot of the "essentialist" mistakes that John Boswell fell into with his Social Tolerance book. Dover's book has more cool photos in it, but Halperin's book is very worthwhile. It's a must-have for classics and gay readers.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting but ideologically wrong-headed 31. Dezember 2008
Von Neil Ronan C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Halperin's work is essentially ideological, as I suspect he would admit. He believes first and then argues. His reading of the primary sources reflects his biases, and his arguments based on Greek vocabulary are weak and based on a lot of semantic trickery. If you are interested in sexuality in the ancient world, you have to read Halperin, but only those that start from his own ideological assumptions will be convinced he has said anything important.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Academically Excellent Reference Book 29. Mai 2003
Von W. P. Schaefer III - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
David Halpern "is Professor of Literature in the School of
Humanities and Social Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology" . . . and it shows. This book is a complex
treatment of a complex subject.
I don't like to divulge the endings of novels - let the reader
find out for himself . . . but this is no novel, and this has
no final conclusion. It deals with societal characteristics (East
and West) from about 500 BC to present, maintains that
"homosexuality" is pretty much a POOR psychological category
used only in the LAST 150 years, and, as such, has many
failings . . . as a valid classification of human behavior.
The author investigates both the NATURE (are there genetic
homosexuals?) and NURTURE (are there socially produced homosexuals?)
sides of the question: "WHAT PRODUCES SAME SEX BEHAVIOR?"
By the time you finish the book you will be an expert on
Ancient Greek History (Athens). . . at LEAST.
In summation I believe the author "feels", as do I, that
sex is a strong undifferentiated, biological drive
channeled to target by MANY environmental elements.
This book should be required reading for all undergraduates.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Read Camille Paglia instead 6. März 2013
Von Reader in Virginia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Save yourself the effort. Camille Paglia has already done the work for you. Before you read Halperin's book, read Camille Paglia's showstopping breakdown of it. It's a laugh-out-loud riot and basically calls this travesty out for what it is.
