Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0226075923, Paperback)The last two decades have produced an enormous amount of literature about the role of male homosexuality in the classical and early Christian world--but almost nothing about lesbianism. Bernadette Brooten's Love Between Women remedies that oversight with a vengeance. Brooten's extraordinarily well-researched and breathtakingly argued book proves that female homoeroticism was well-established and thriving 2,000 years ago. Equally as important are her analyses of 19th century and contemporary scholars who have re-closeted lesbianism through ignorance and prejudice. Love Between Women is a breakthrough book that radically changes how we think about history and sexuality.
