Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book, the fourth in a new series whose major theme is the radical quest for revolutionary change, explores the politics and roots of the gay and lesbian liberation movement in the United States. Cruikshank, a lesbian and gay liberation activist, focuses on the practices, theory, successes, interconnectedness, and failures of gay liberation activism. She theorizes that there are three new variables beyond homophobia in attitudes toward gay society. The factors of heterosexism, heterocentrism, and compulsory heterosexuality all have a major impact on the development of self and the creation of a political movement within the gay community. Cruikshank's primary objective is to make gay liberation understandable to the lay reader and to encourage further research. A worthy addition to gay studies collections in larger public and academic institutions.-- Michael A. Lutes, Univ. of Notre Dame Lib., Ind.
Booknews
Examines contemporary gay and lesbian liberation as three different movements: of sexual freedom, political power, and of ideas. Gay culture, lesbian feminism, and conflicts and debates within the movement are treated in separate chapters that discuss such topics as the historical roots, links to other movements, the impact of AIDS, homophobia in the larger community, and legal issues and cases. Also in paper (not seen) for $14.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
