Product description

Review

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.' The 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

Book Description

Matt Cook explores the relationship between London and homosexuality in the period 1885 to 1914. Cook combines discussion of London's homosexual subculture and various major and minor scandals with a detailed examination of representations in the press, in science and in literature.
