About this book

The interest of this book lies at the very center of a recent deployment of homosexual liberation on a larger scale. The reader will be able to understand how each of the traditions studied articulates its own regulatory mechanisms of male sexuality in general, and homosexuality.

Reviews

"Looking at Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam as well as Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Brazilian religions, Hurteau represents the varied voices that have had something to say about homosexual male relations in a fair and objective manner. Hurteau describes quite thoroughly what religious thinkers have expressed about marriage, gender relations, procreation, homoerotic fantasies, and special friendships. Throughout readers will hear Hurteau's own voice which is always inquisitive, appreciative, fair, and in several important ways also critical. This is an unusually knowledgeable and balanced book. It is as well an exceptionally wise and humane work." Frederick Bird, Research Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Waterloo, Canada and Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Concordia University, Canada
