This collection of essays, albeit pricey, is simply a must have for those who are interested in identity and human rights. Dwight McBride's work is notable for many reasons. It is provocative, thoughtful, and necessary. As he examines the role of the gay black man in America, he sheds light on the hiring policies of store's like Abercrombie, as well as stereotypes perpetuated by the world of porn. Unafraid to risk losing the following of a sometimes stodgy academia, McBride turns to topics that men of lower socio-economic status face, and elucidates the seemingly common or banal. Truly a great scholar, McBride's work is perfect for the scholar or the interested reader outside of the academy. Never boring, you can learn a great deal from the material presented without feeling as though you are reading a textbook.
