"At various times, homosexuality has been considered the noblest of loves, a horrible sin, a psychological condition or grounds for torture and execution. David F. Greenberg's careful, encyclopedic and important new book argues that homosexuality is only deviant because society has constructed, or defined, it as deviant. The book takes us over vast terrains of example and detail in the history of homosexuality."--Nicholas B. Dirks, New York Times Book Review

David Greenberg teaches history at Yale University. Formerly an editor of The New Republic, he writes for Slate, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other national publications. He lives in Manhattan and in New Haven.
