Hungochani The History of a Dissident Sexuality in Southern Africa by Marc Epprecht

Challenging the stereotypes of African heterosexuality - from the precolonial era to the present.


This is an important and ground
-breaking work. Epprecht is without doubt the foremost scholar of Southern African homoerotic sexuality, and this book brings together material from several previous publications and much new work into a book that will become the standard work on the subject. T. Dunbar Moodie, Department of Anthropology and Sociology, Hobart and William Smith Colleges Hungochani is a remarkable book. It not only sheds light on the history of same-sex desire in southern Africa ... but it tells us a great deal about the often deplorable state of gender relations in the region... Hungochani is essential reading not only for those interested in homosexuality in Africa, but for all who seek to understand the social and sexual practices that underlie the HIV/AIDS epidemic in southern Africa. --Times Literary Supplement, December 9, 2005

... Epprecht works with calm and precision as he unpicks layer after layer of evasion, illogicality and self-contradiction in the conservative or denialist record. --African Affairs, Vol 104, Number 417, October 2005
