Within the Judeo-Christian tradition, Sodom and Gomarrah represent locales in which threats to national formation are couched in sexual terms. Reclaiming Sodom surveys how the view of homosexual activities as socially dangerous has been perpetuated by the state, the church, the law, and other institutions. The collection is wide-ranging, taking the reader from biblical scholarship, to the legal mobilization towards the catagory of sodomy in 18th and 19th century England, to an analysis of the ways in which the Judeo-Christian tradition has shaped anthopological accounts of same-sex practices of non-western people. Reclaiming Sodom explores alternatives to the force of the Sodomitic biblical narrative in Islamic, western and non-western traditioins, and discusses ways in which sodomy calls into question definitions of gender and sexuality. The collection provocatively examines the relations between sex/gender identities and sexual acts, and argues for the political usefulness of both Sodom and sodomy. Reclaiming Sodomy makes a controversial and important contribution to literture on sexuality and gender, as well as the nature of sex in our culture.
