Sociological Aspects of Homosexuality: A Comparative Study of Three Types of Homosexuals

By Michael Schofield | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

This research was made possible by a considerate grant from the Home Office and was administered by Birkbeck College ( University of London) under the direction of Professor Alec Rodger. It should not, of course, be assumed that either the Home Office or Birkbeck College agree with all the statements made in this report.

Valuable advice and assistance was received from Mr Johan Aucamp, Dr J. C. Barker, Mr Peter Cavanagh, Professor Desmond Curran, Mr Michael Davies, Dr Henry Durant, Mr Alan Elliot, Dr T. G. Grygier, Miss Dagmar Klein, Dr P. B. de Mare, Mr. Louis Moss, Dr M. S. de Mowbray, Dr Denis Parr, Dr W. Paterson-Brown, Mr Phillip Ransome, Miss Eve Saville, Dr Fergus Stallard and Mr Leslie Wilkins. The Prison Commissioners, as they then were, gave permission and made the necessary arrangements for offenders to be interviewed in Brixton, Wandsworth and Wormwood Scrubs.

I am particularly indebted to Mr T. S. Lodge of the Home Office Research Unit for his encouragement and patience; to Mrs E. Gibson, also of this Research Unit, for valuable comments and advice; to Miss G. Blunt for her meticulous secretarial assistance; and to Mr Anthony Skyrme for considerable help in the preparation of the manuscript in its various drafts. I owe a special debt to Professor Alec Rodger for his understanding and guidance throughout the research. I should like to express my profound gratitude to all these people without in any way suggesting that they are responsible for the views expressed in this report.

Thanks are also due to the 300 men who agreed to answer my questions, sometimes in difficult circumstances. I hope the cooperation of all these people will lead to a better understanding of this difficult problem.

M. S.

The publishers are indebted to the British Medical Association for permission to include material from 'Case of Homosexuality Treated by Aversion Therapy' by Dr B. James, published originally in British Medical Journal Volume 1, 1962.
