Summarizes, interrelates, and synthesizes recent scholarship on male and female homosexuality and bisexuality, and, reaching beyond questions of physical sexuality, examines the effects of homophilia and homophobia on literature, art, religion, science, law, philosophy, society, and history. Some 770 articles provide interdisciplinary, transhistorical, and cross-cultural analyses, with the main focus on individuals--of whatever sexual orientation--who have influenced responses to homosexual behavior. Comprehensively indexed and thoroughly cross-referenced. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
