Beschreibung

Matt Cook explores the relationship between London and homosexuality from 1885 to 1914, years marked by intensification in concern about male-male relationships and also by the emergence of an embryonic homosexual rights movement. Cook combines his coverage of London's homosexual subculture and various major and minor scandals with a detailed examination of representations in the press, science and literature. This conjunction of approaches distinguishes this study from other works and provides new insight into the development of ideas about homosexuality during the period.

Pressestimmen

Review of the hardback: 'The book draws on literary scholarship as well as lesbian, gay or queer theory. It deploys urban geography as easily as the new social history. Cook does not have to prove the value of the topic. He can deploy it to bring to life a moment of history on the cusp of radical change.' Times Higher Education Supplement From the hardback review: '... despite taking a very broad interdisciplinary approach to its subject, finds its main strength in providing and examining just this wealth of neglected details, often bringing them to bear on quite well-known events in an extremely illuminating way. ... an essential sourcebook for any student of the homosexual culture of this period, whether studying the arts, the sciences, or politics.' MLR
