Description
Breathtaking in its historical and geographical scope, Stephen O. Murray's new book provides a sweeping examination of the construction of male and female homosexualities. Although the variety of behaviors, subcategories, and meanings of same-sex sex he surveys is considerable. Murray argues that there are a few recurring types. Exploring the range of constructions throughout time and throughout the world, he relates the patterns to other sociocultural institutions.

Murray stresses that humans are more than mere "cultural carriers". Even though the roles and conceptions of a society channel desire into familiar patterns, there is considerable variability in what individuals do within these channels.

Homosexualities is the most comprehensive description and analysis of social constructions of same-sex sexuality and will prove Foucault's followers wrong in suggesting no real analogue between modern and premodern homosexuals.
