The second edition of the 1999 work described in NTA 43, p. 633 contains a new appendix on graffiti from Pompeii and an afterword looking back on central themes in the light of recent scholarship. It leaves the five chapters of the first edition unchanged in substance, though with some revisions and additions. After a twelve-page introduction (rewritten), the volume deals with Roman traditions--slaves, prostitutes, and wives; Greece and Rome; the concept of stuprum; effeminacy and masculinity; and sexual roles and identities (final sections rewritten). M. C. Nussbaum has provided a six-page foreword.
