Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Winner of the 2003 Award for Distinguished Book in Lesbian, Gay, and/or Bisexual Psychology from the American Psychological Association's Division 44 (the Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Issues).

‘This is an important work of scholarship, which is both a historical milestone and a signpost to the future. Above all, it is engaged in a dialogue with its readers and that can only be of benefit both to the psychological profession and to the lesbian and gay community.' Professor Jeffrey Weeks, Dean of Humanities and Social Science, South Bank University, UK.

‘This is an exciting book that covers topics in lesbian and gay psychology in the United Kingdom. It includes current scholarship in clinical, developmental and social psychology, and promises to be a classic in its field.' Dr Esther Rothblum, Editor, Journal of Lesbian Studies

"Readers will gain an appreciation of the progress of work on lesbian and gay psychology as it pertains both to lesbian and gay issues and to psychology in general." H.L. Minton, formerly, University of Windsor, Choice, December 2002

"The editors are well established scholars, and the contributors are experts in their respective fields. The fourteen chapters are all worth reading [...] Overall, the book deals with most of the topics that fall legitimately within gay/lesbian psychology. It is well edited and well structured. At the paperback price, it is a worthwhile invetsment." Sonia Gatzanis, Sexual and Relationship Therapy, Vol. 18, No. 1, 2003
