MEDIA REVIEWS
"A wonderfully readable study on Sweden''s sexual varieties. [The author] adds another set of arguments to the continuing debate on the societal shift from criminalizing acts of ''sodomy'' to the conscious expression of sexual identities." -- Gert Hekma "European History Quarterly"
"Rydstrom's book is a valuable addition to our knowledge about sodomy, male homosexuality, and the impact of modern discourses about sexuality on people's lives. His biggest accomplishment is laying out the many ways that bestiality and same-sex contact were linked not only in person's minds, but also sometimes in practice. . . . It is the combination of fascinating, often moving, stories and sophisticated analysis that makes this book a must-read for anyone interested in homosexuality or male sexuality . . . between 1880 and 1950." -- Clayton Whisnant "H-Net Reviews"
"[An] important and sophisticated demonstration of the benefits of "longue-duree "analysis."--Dagmar Herzog "Journal of Modern History ""
