About this book
With an eclectic cast of royal mistresses, gay charioteers, medieval transvestites, lonely goat lovers, prostitutes of all stripes, and London rent boys, this is a highly evocative and sweeping exploration of sexual behaviour and the law over the last 4,000 years. 'Fascinating and gruesomely compelling' "Mail On Sunday"
Eric Berkowitz evokes the entire sweep of Western sex law, from the savage impalement of an Ancient Mesopotamian adulteress to the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde in 1895 for 'gross indecency'.
