The Tradition of Female Transvestism in Early Modern Europe

封面
Macmillan, 1989 - 128 頁
In 17th and 18th century Europe, especially Holland, England and Germany, so many women chose to dress and live as men, that an underground tradition of female transvestism within the popular culture can be detected. This study, based upon 119 well-documented Dutch cases of female transvestism, is the first of its kind and tells us how these women adapted to male life and why, once discovered, reactions to them were both fierce and varied. It also explores the reasons why they chose to change gender. Special attention is devoted to transvestism by one partner as the only way in which lesbian love was conceiveable in this period.

Easy read, well formatted and presented. Sometimes comes off a bit 'politicized' at times but has good information on this phenomenon. 閱讀評論全文
