Hidden from History is a collection of essays analyzing the political, philosophical, and social history of homosexuality from the Ancient World to the Postwar Era. Thirty pieces cover different periods and societies from a variety of perspectives (e.g. "Lesbian Sexuality in Medieval and Early Modern Europe," "The Lesbian and Gay Subculture of Jazz Age Harlem"). The editors have included subjects frequently overlooked in the field, such as homosexuality in third-world societies, the patterns of homosexual behaviour in everyday life, and (in the biographical essays) the influence of the subject's homosexuality on work and career.
A collection of "some of the most exciting recent work" in the study of gay and lesbian history, the book summarizes the research done in the last decade and points to questions which must still be addressed. The editors sum up the book's raison d'etre in the introduction: "personal sexual behaviour is never simply a private matter, but is always shaped by and shapes the wider social and political milieux."
