Reprint of a very rare “study” from 1904. An astonishingly detailed anthropological study of all forms of alternative sexuality – homosexuality, perversions, treatment of sexual inversion, hermaphrodites, eunuchs, male prostitutes and pederasts. A rather lurid interest in the topics pervades this allegedly scholarly work, and many anecdotes of questionable academic character are included.
