Reviews

"Histories of the Transgender Child is a tour de force contribution to transgender studies, tracing little-noticed pathways from the past toward convergences that increasingly take center stage in the next field. An elegant combination of sophisticated theorization with equally sophisticated attention to archival and historical materials, this is one of the best books in trans studies in recent years."--Susan Stryker, University of Arizona

"Julian Gill-Peterson excavates the history of medicine, introducing readers to a century's worth of gender nonconforming youth. This remarkable book is not merely a backward glance; it offers an urgent call to reimagine trans as a form of self-knowledge children can hold and for an ethics of care that focuses on affirmation."--Tey Meadow, author of Trans Kids

"Meticulously researched and compellingly argued, this book is a welcome addition to a number of fields, including trans of color critique, childhood studies, and queer and trans history."--C. Riley Snorton, author of Black on Both Sides


"This work fills a gap in queer history; older trans, intersex, and nonbinary people who work through the dense, theoretical prose may find their experiences reflected in Gill-Peterson's history, and younger ones may discover that their "uncovering of a century of untold stories" provides a tether to an underexplored legacy."--Publishers Weekly
