Description
Combining impeccable scholarship with accessible prose, this volume argues that institutionalized pederasty began after 650 B.C., far later than previously thought, and was used as a means of stemming overpopulation in the upper class.

Pederasty established bonds that William Armstrong Percy III argues were responsible for the rise of Hellas and the "Greek miracle": in two centuries the population of Attica, 45,000 adult males in six generations, produced an astounding number of great men who laid the foundations of Western thought and civilization.
