About the Author
"Samuel Clowes Huneke's comparative look at gay life in postwar Germany, divided between a liberal capitalist West and a state socialist East, offers a unique opportunity to think through this history in more complicated ways that will resonate in many national contexts. Huneke is elegantly able to 'weave together and to compare the trajectories of male homosexuality in the two German states across the span of forty years' - an ambitious project which constitutes his primary intervention."
"States of Liberation is a pioneering, field-shaping masterpiece. This exceptional book will be a staple of the study of post-war Germany."
