Publisher Comments:

Here at last is a comprehensive and highly approachable introduction to lesbian and gay studies for students and general readers. More than one hundred articles, essays, and primary documents cover the formation of gay identity, religious, scientific, medical, and legal perspectives, the mainstream media, lesbian and gay media, and community prospects and tactics. From Eve Kosofsky Sedgwicks essay, "How to Bring Your Kids Up Gay," to Joseph Cardinal Ratzingers "Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons," to a 1947 "Newsweek" article, "Homosexuals in Uniform," "The Columbia Reader" explores experiences and representations of lesbian and gay people in an engaging and accessible format.<BR>The "Columbia Reader" features: <BR>- concise introductions to each section, as well as a substantial general introduction<BR>- viewpoints -ranging from radical to conservative -of lesbian and gay scholars and community writers, as well as nongay intellectuals and public figures<BR>- essays, articles, and primary documents from both mainstream and lesbian/gay sources<BR>- detailed exploration of mainstream media representations of gays and lesbians in films, television, and print as well as the rise of lesbian/gay media outlets<BR>- broad coverage of history and identity, social, cultural, legal, medical, and religious regulation, AIDS, and lesbian and gay political agendas and strategies<BR>- current topics, such as the recent development of a cybercommunity, as well as questions of censorship and pornography, same-sex marriage, the ethics of "outing," gay and lesbian activism, and the conservative backlash<BR>Grounded in key social and political topicsrather than wholly theoretical approaches, "The Columbia Reader on Lesbians and Gay Men in Media, Society, and Politics" will be a valuable resource for years to come.

Book News Annotation:

This reader compiles articles that address legal issues, religion, AIDS, and education, with much attention to mass media as it reflects and shapes the images of lesbians and gay men. After the introduction, the book is divided into five parts (each section opening with a short essay by the editors) dealing with identity, institutions and opinion makers, mainstream and gay and lesbian media, and community prospects. There is no index, but credits are listed.
