The Introduction establishes the parameters for the book. It opens with a case‐study for what will follow: Thomas Cannon's illegal 1752 pamphlet comparing ancient and modern pederasty. The introduction then continues to examine other scholarship in the area, in particular, the work of Michel Foucault, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Michael McKeon and Thomas King. The introduction then offers a brief synopsis for each chapter to come.
