Tongzhi explores the world of same-sex relationships and their varied characteristics in Chinese culture. Using traditional Chinese history (of same-sex eroticism) as a basis for discussion, this book examines the evolution of same-sex relationships; the conflicts and pressures faced by Tongzhi; the past influence of colonialism and present influence of the "western" world; and the profound importance of the family-kinship system. Undergraduate and graduate students, academics, and professionals in the fields of Chinese culture, sociology, and lesbian/gay studies will find this book useful.
