As interest in understanding homoeroticism in Chinese tradition grows within international research on the comparative history of sexuality there is a real need for a reliable and well-organised guide and introduction to the full range of original source materials to avoid the growing problems of definition, misunderstanding, oversight and ignorance within international scholarship, largely as a result of the difficulties of classical Chinese and the neglect of context. Homoeroticism in Imperial China is the first sourcebook in a western language to provide access to the rich primary sources of homoerotic writing from imperial China (fifth century bce to the early twentieth century ce.). This book provides: accurate translations from 80 key original documents concise explanation of the context and significance of each entry translations that preserve the aesthetic qualities evident in the original sources This is an essential sourcebook for scholars of Imperial Chinese history and culture and sexuality studies.
