The Other Love

£8.99

Product description

As an MP in the 1950s, Mr Montgomery Hyde strongly supported the implementation of the Wolfenden Report on homosexual offences, and since then he has carried out a detailed study of the subject. The result of his researches, presented in this book, has been described by the Secretary of the Homosexual Law Reform Society as "a fascinatingly informative legal, social and literary history of homosexuality". For contemporary aspects of the subject, Mr Hyde has had access to the Society's files of case histories and, on the historical side, to such important social documents as the unpublished memoirs of the Victorian homosexual writer John Addington Symonds and the original accounts of the long series of criminal trials of homosexuals beginning with that of the Earl of Castlehaven in 1631.

This revealing book, by the author of the standard authorities on Oscar Wilde's trials and prison experiences, should prove of absorbing interest both to the general reader and to the more specialized student of sexual psychology.

Harford Montgomery Hyde (14 August 1907 – 10 August 1989) was born in Belfast in and through his mother's family was a cousin of Henry James, the American-born novelist. He was a barrister, politician, author and biographer, who lost his seat in the House of Commons as a result of campaigning for homosexual law reform.

This book is in good general condition with the expected imperfections associated with one of its age (45 years). Photographs #2 to #4 detail these and they include a previous owner's inscription, discolouration, sellotape marks and a slight tear to the top of the dustjacket.
