The New York Times on Gay and Lesbian Issues
Susan Burgess, Ohio University

In The New York Times on Gay and Lesbian Issues author and gender studies professor Susan Burgess showcases relevant news stories, editorials, and letters to the editor to present the major political, social, and cultural issues that have affected gays and lesbians in the U.S. over the past 150 years.  

The book includes twelve chapters covering topics such as the Stonewall Uprising, gays in the military, youth and education, and AIDS. Each chapter features an overview of the issue at hand, introduction to each of the articles selected, and profiles of key events and personalities. This unique title allows students and researchers access to authoritative and engaging information, giving historical context to contemporary issues.
"This useful collection of primary documents is well suited to under­graduate students beginning their research on gay and lesbian history and issues." - Library Journal

"The large index is useful in helping readers locate specific individuals, court cases, and subjects. Images and photographs help explain topics or show individuals involved in LGBT subjects. An important resource on a popular topic, this title will benefit most school and public libraries. For both circulating and reference collections." - Booklist
