Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In The Harvey Milk Institute Guide to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Internet Research, editors Alan Ellis, Liz Highley, Kevin Schaub and Melissa White offer an invaluable resource for academic, social and political research. Observing that pursuing information on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) issues is still somewhat difficult today, the editors provide two chapters on Internet research practices and tools (including a discussion of determining the credibility of electronic information), and then several more based on different professional fields including Queer Studies, Human Sexuality Studies, Social and Biological Sciences, Law and Philosophy, etc. Each of these later chapters lists numerous Internet sites and some non-Web resources. (Nov.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
