Queer America: A GLBT History of the 20th Century

by Vicki L. Eaklor - £15.99  The New Press (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781595586360 | ISBN 10: 1595586369

Placing GLBT people at the center of the history of the twentieth century, Vicki L. Eaklorís Queer America: A Peopleís GLBT History of the 20th Century is a major new effort to popularize a long-overlooked chapter in the American experience.
 
Written in the tradition of Howard Zinnís A Peopleís History of the United States, Queer America provides a decade-by-decade overview of major issues and events in GLBT history including the Harlem Renaissance, changes in military policy, the Stonewall riots, organizations and alliances, AIDS, same-sex marriage, representation in the media, and legal battles. Eaklor brings the steady hand and perspective of an historian to the task of writing a sweeping work of narrative nonfiction that is both meaningful and relevant to all Americans.
 
Queer America includes a rich array of visual materials, including sidebars highlighting major debates and vignettes focusing on key individuals. A timeline and further reading sections conclude each chapter; a full bibliography and black-and-white images enhance the text. Queer America is destined to become an indispensable resource for students, teachers, and general readers alike.
