Greek Love Reconsidered

Was the Ancient Greek practice of pederasty a rite of pedagogical mentorship and initiation into adulthood, as the Greeks themselves supposed, or exploitation of the vulnerable and weak by the powerful, as some critics have argued? Four respected scholars discuss the institution from different perspectives, with a view to reconstructing the Greeks' own attitudes toward pederasty in their full complexity and chronological evolution. * Thomas K. Hubbard, Pederasty and Democracy: The Marginalization of a Social Practice
* H. A. Shapiro, Leagros and Euphronios: Painting Pederasty in Athens
* David B. Dodd, Athenian Ideas about Cretan Pederasty
* S. Sara Monoson, The Allure of Harmodius and Aristogeiton
* Thomas K. Hubbard, tr., A Medley of Greek Verse
