Paperback Reprint edition (May 1994) 
Plume; ISBN: 0452272068

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"GLBT Studies/History; Since 1969, the word Stonewall has been synonymous with gay resistance to oppression. Yet remarkably, the full story of the Stonewall riots has never been told. Now historian Duberman profiles six early activists, whose lives intersected during the turbulent event that was to become the defining moment of the burgeoning liberation movement."

David F. Greenberg - The Construction of Homosexuality - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by David F. Greenberg - Author of : The Construction of Homosexuality
Hardcover - 635 pages (December 1988) 
University of Chicago Press; ISBN: 0226306275

"GLBT Studies/History; "At various times, homosexuality has been considered the noblest of loves, a horrible sin, a psychological condition or grounds for torture and execution. David F. Greenberg's careful, encyclopedic and important new book argues that homosexuality is only deviant because society has constructed, or defined, it as deviant. The book takes us over vast terrains of example and detail in the history of homosexuality."

David M. Halperin - How to Do the History of Homosexuality - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by David M. Halperin - Author of : How to Do the History of Homosexuality
Hardcover: 200 pages (November 2002)
University of Chicago Press; ISBN: 0226314472

"GLBT Studies/History; David M. Halperin is one of the most eminent thinkers in the world of gay and critical studies. In this new work, he revisits and refines the argument he set forth in "One Hundred Years of Homosexuality": the idea that both hetero- and homosexuality are not biologically determined but, instead, socially constructed. "How to Do the History of Homosexuality" builds on this seminal argument, answers its critics and makes greater allowances for continuities in the history of sexuality."

Heinz Heger, Kalus Muller (Intro.), David Fernback (Trans.) - Men With the Pink Triangle : The True, Life-And-Death Story of Homosexuals in the Nazi Death Camps - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by Heinz Heger and David Fernback - Author of : Men With the Pink Triangle : The True, Life-And-Death Story of Homosexuals in the Nazi Death Camps
Paperback - 120 pages Rev edition (October 1994) 
Alyson Pubns; ISBN: 1555830064

"GLBT Studies/History; It has only been since the mid-1970s that any attention has been paid to the persecution and interment of gay men by the Nazis during the Third Reich. Since that time, books such as Richard Plant's The Pink Triangle (and Martin Sherman's play Bent) have illuminated this nearly lost history. Heinz Heger's first-person account, The Men with the Pink Triangle, was one of the first books on the topic and remains one of the most important."
