Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Columbia Reader features:

  • concise introductions to each section, as well as a substantial general introduction
  • viewpoints — ranging from radical to conservative — of lesbian and gay scholars and community writers, as well as nongay intellectuals and public figures
  • essays, articles, and primary documents from both mainstream and lesbian/gay sources
  • 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
  • broad coverage of history and identity, social, cultural, legal, medical, and religious regulation, AIDS, and lesbian and gay political agendas and strategies
  • 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

  • Review:

    "A lively, irreverent one-stop-shopping reader on lesbian and gay male sensibility. Its impact is cumulative and subtly subversive: these are protean journalists, authors and activists giving voice to the depth and variety of gay experience­­a voice that will no longer tolerate being squelched." Leroy Aarons, founder, the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association

    Review:

    "Casts a much wider net than previous anthologies. It is unique in its combination of historical documents and current work. A major contribution to lesbian and gay studies." Margaret Cruikshank, , author of The Gay and Lesbian Liberation Movement

    Review:

    "A source book destined to be widely cited by activists and academics alike... a lively and unique anthology of articles analyzing, illustrating, and challenging the sexual prejudice that pervades American society. Students of mass media and those simply trying to understand Ellen's coming out episode in historical context will find it tremendously useful." Gregory Herek, editor of Stigma and Sexual Orientation and Out In Force: Sexual Orientation and the Military editor of Stigma and Sexual Orientation and Out In Force: Sexual Orientation and the Military

    Review:

    "The most up-to-date, media-savvy conception of how to organize and teach an introductory course on lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender studies to undergraduates. I can't wait to use it." Esther Newton, author of Cherry Grove, Fire Island: Sixty Years in America's First Gay and Lesbian Town

    Review:

    "A unique and lively anthology." Carol LeMasters, The Lesbian Review of Books

    Synopsis:

    More than 100 articles, essays, letters, 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.
