Featuring the work of established scholars in the field of the history of same-sex desire and profiling the work of younger, emerging scholars, this book takes the study of male same-sex relationships in the Renaissance and Enlightenment periods in exciting and radical new directions. The essays provide a survey of current scholarship and trends followed by suggestions for future research and fruitful avenues for further exploration. In sum, they provide a snapshot of the most recent research, while always relating the historiography of queer masculinities to the general histories of the regions covered.
