As a reader far from the doctorate level of the academic hierarchy, I found it very difficult to navigate the abstruse language and the general emphasis on the journey of Islamicate LGBTQ identities into the limelight of historiography and queer scholarship. In this anthology, various scholars and researchers investigate particular aspects of Islamicate sexual history in eight articles. As a proud overanalyzer of popular history and the ways in which the past has been recorded in a hierarchical fashion, one of my favorite pieces in the entire collection was "The Past is a Foreign Country?

In the piece, she enlightens readers on a common habit that recorders of history indulge in, which is the "first in Europe and then elsewhere" structure of time. She explains how this practice constructs a value system, which places European traditions and practices as the main lens with which to approach history, leaving all other cultures to act as subordinates in comparison.

The anthology, in general, provides meticulous investigation into the often subtle exhibitions of sexuality and gender variations in multiple time periods and locations such as Iran, Egypt, Syria, and Spain.

The book weaves together intricate unspoken histories that illuminate the errors and blind spots of dominant assumptions on the realities of the "Muslim world," both past and present.
