Featured Review: Images of Ancient Greek Pederasty

Images of Ancient Greek Pederasty

Images of Ancient Greek Pederasty continues to receive critical praise! Lavishly illustrated, this book is the most comprehensive treatment available of an institution that has few modern parallels.

Now out in paperback, Images of Ancient Greek Pederasty has received a number of glowing reviews:

"This volume will be a much-used starting point for students and scholars of Greek male sexuality."
Times Higher Education Supplement

"The book examines a considerably wider range of images than has been previously available and locates them in a clear and engaging fashion in a cultural context."
Helene P. Foley, Barnard College, Columbia University

"This book meets a real need. The very fact that the authors' analysis is based on study of approximately 1000 vases (111 of which they illustrate) makes Images of Ancient Greek Pederasty a valuable resource, and an appendix including a catalog of 647 vases compiled by the late Keith DeVries only adds to its value. The book greatly expands the amount of material available to nonspecialists . . . a significant contribution to our understanding of Greek pederasty."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review
