Description - Colonialism and Homosexuality by Robert Aldrich

Colonial lands, which in the late 19th and early 20th centuries included most of Africa, South and Southeast Asia and the islands of the Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Caribbean, provided a haven for many Europeans whose sexual inclinations did not fit neatly into the constraints of European society. "Colonialism and Homosexuality" is a thorough investigation of the connections of homosexuality and imperialism from the late 1800s to the era of "new imperialism" - until the era of decolonization.Robert Aldrich reconstructs the context of a number of liaisons, including those of famous men such as Cecil Rhodes, E.M. Forster or Andre Gide, and the historical situations which produced both the Europeans and their non-Western lovers. Each of the case studies is a micro-history of a particular colonial situation, a sexual encounter and its wider implications for cultural and political life.
