This comprehensive study of Roman sexuality and the ideologies of masculinity discusses a wide range of ancient texts, arguing that native Roman concepts of masculinity did not rely on the distinction between homosexuality and heterosexuality, but were instead structured around such antitheses as free vs. slave, dominant vs. subordinate, and masculine vs. effeminate.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A landmark work of scholarship and should prove accessible to scholars of all disciplines * American Historical Review *
Williams presents a wealth of material that will intrigue the contemporary reader with its strangeness * American Historical Review *
Extraordinary clarity and persuasiveness ... this book may do more for the understanding of classical sexuality than any since Kenneth Dover's Greek Homosexuality of twenty years ago * W. V. Harris, Times Literary Supplement *
