Reviews

Winner of the 2015 Randy Shilts Award

"Excellent and richly documented. . . . Beachy's work must [be] considered in the larger context of a shift in cultural studies. . . . Fascinating." --V.R. Berghahn, The New York Times Book Review

"Beachy enlarges our understanding of how the international gay-rights movement eventually prospered, despite the setbacks that it experienced not only in Nazi Germany but also in mid-century America." --The New Yorker

"A very good, serious, detailed, scholarly work of history by an excellent researcher who has clearly done his homework--and then some." --San Francisco Chronicle

"A superb work of historical reclamation-by far the best account we have of the formative years of homosexual identity and emancipation, it is brilliantly researched and beautifully written." --Martin Duberman, Distinguished Professor of History Emeritus, CUNY
