the geography of perversion

Two notes about _The Geography of Perversion: Male-to-Male Sexual
Behavior Outside the West, 1750-1918_, since it's come up. First of
all, the use of the word "perversion" does not, of course, indicate
the author's own attitude, but rather the way same-sex desire was
formulated in many of the texts discussed in the book. You may also
be interested to know that in the U.S. the book is available from New
York University Press.

I hope you find this information to be useful.

With best wishes,
