This review is from: Homosexuality and Civilization (Paperback)
Brilliant book and a total education on what homosexuals went through in times long past.Many surprises in the information on how some countries were much more acceptable to a different pattern of life than others .Although life is never easy for homosexuals reading this made me realize how much this world has altered ,but in some aspects not so much for the better .
10 out of 10 for the author.

This review is from: Homosexuality and Civilization (Paperback)
I have been asked to rate Louis Crompton's " Homosexuality and Civilization", having read only through half this monumental work, the fruits of a lifetime's study. His historical approach to the subject matter is most enlightening since there have been times and cutures in the past that have tolerated homosexuality in one form or another, until the Judeo-Christian worldview took root in Europe when the condemnation, and demonization, started which has lasted until this day among rightwing Christian groups.

The most interesting finding for me was that there seems to be no inherent or genetic distate for samesex practices. All is a matter of culture and social conditioning. This book should be appreciated by a wide audience, and should especially be read by professionals, such as doctors, to give them a proper prospective on the subject matter.
