Pelo Vaso Traseiro : Sodomy and Sodomites in Luso-Brazilian History
This volume of collected articles is the first to focus exclusively on the history of homosexuality in the Portuguese-speaking world. Of the thirteen studies included, nine make available for the first time in English the work of eminent Luso-Brazilian historians, including no less than three by the preeminent researcher in the field, Professor Luiz Mott of the Federal University of Bahia. Two others analyze in detail the first novels, The Baron of Lavos in Portugal and Bom-Crioulo in Brazil--both written in the 1890s--that portray a homosexual relationship in a frankly realistic way. The collection should serve as essential reading for courses in Portuguese and Brazilian social history.
