This vintage book contains Edward Carpenter's ground-breaking study of homosexuality, "Intermediate Types Among Primitive Folk - A Study In Social Evolution". It is a fascinating study of social evolution centered on the idea that there is a spectrum of 'types' of man and woman. The author postulates that there exists a range in sexuality, there being feminine bodies with masculine minds and vice versa. Expertly written in a manner that makes it readily accessible, this book is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in gender and sexuality, and is it not to be missed by fans and collectors of Carpenter's seminal work. Contents include: "As Prophet or Priest", "As Wizard or Witch", "As Inventors of the Arts and Crafts", "Hermaphrodism among Gods and Mortals", "The Dorian Military Comradeship", "Its Relation to the Status of Woman", "Its Relation for Civic Life and Religion", etcetera. Originally published in 1914, this text is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
