Reviews

"A terrific piece of nonfiction, a satisfying and illuminating document that will be referred to time and again." --The Advocate

"Considering all that went before, the ongoing repression and corruption, and the scent of social and political liberation in the air, Carter's eloquent account makes it clear that something was bound to catch fire...A complete, full-bodied portrait, with lots of flesh on the bones of a strong narrative structure." --Kirkus Reviews

"No matter what you may believe about the event, you will gain new insights. Historically important and socially significant." --Dallas Morning News

"A gripping, hour-by-hour reconstruction...this definitive account is long overdue but well worth the wait." --Richard Labonte, Bookmarks

"Stonewall presents a thorough and often compelling reconstruction of the nearly weeklong protest...provides thoughtful and sometimes delightfully quirky details about the era's gay culture and politics, Greenwich Village itself, and the New Yorkers - from mobsters to flame queens to cops - who that morning stumbled into history." --Providence Journal-Bulletin

"A beautifully written, suspenseful narrative that also meets the toughest tests of academic research." --Bay Area Reporter
