About the Author

Ronald Bayer is Professor at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University.

Reviews

"Bayer's job in his tight, extraordinary packed bullet of a book is a particular one: to tell us what was at stake when the A.P.A. erased homosexuality from its list of mental diseases in 1973.... Bayer's book takes us behind the scenes of this uneasy linguistic victory in a way we have never been taken before."--The Nation
"

Ronald Bayer has now written a lucid, succinct, and eminently
fair-minded account of the controversy, which resulted in the removal
of homosexuality from the Association's Diagnostic and Statistical
Manual of Psychiatric Disorders.
