Islamic Homosexualities: Culture, History, and Literature
Hasan Mujtaba, Stephen O. Murray, Will Roscoe, Eric Allyn, Louis Crompton, Mildred Dickemann, Badruddin Khan
NYU Press, 1997 - 331 pages
The dramatic impact of Islamic fundamentalism in recent years has skewed our image of Islamic history and culture. Stereotypes depict Islamic societies as economically backward, hyper-patriarchal, and fanatically religious. But in fact, the Islamic world encompasses a great diversity of cultures and a great deal of variation within those cultures in terms of gender roles and sexuality.

It's the only book of its kind I have ever found, and one of the best books on Islamic culture that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Sincere in the attempt to avoid Orientalist exoticist nonsense and immensely readable. Consulter l'avis complet
