Review

'...a well-researched and thought-provoking book that will appeal to both classicists and gender studies scholars because of Holmes' focus on interdisciplinary – and therefore highly innovative – research on the ancient Greek, Roman and contemporary conceptualizations of sex, gender, sexual difference and sexuality... an outstanding resource.'
The Classical Review
