Despite its relative youth, the gay liberation movement is one of the most vigorous and quickly growing of the contemporary social movements. The efforts of a handful of individuals put in motion a movement which now involves millions of people, and spans the globe. The agenda of the movement, like its membership, has grown tremendously, with new causes, organizations, and strategies for reaching goals constantly being adopted.

The Historical Dictionary of the Gay Liberation Movement traces the evolution from the early homosexual rights movement through a century of history and into the contemporary gay and lesbian rights movement. It defines the key organizations and presents their leaders, the essential issues and the strategies those issues suggest, and the situation in numerous countries. Entries for numerous countries provide a global perspective. Most of the information is provided through extensive entries in the dictionary which are supplemented and put into context by the introduction and chronology. A comprehensive bibliography aids the researcher in further study. This volume focuses on the impact of gay and bisexual men (and their allies) on the gay liberation movement. A subsequent volume will trace the role of lesbians in the movement.

About the Author:

Ronald J. Hunt (Ph.D., Political Science, Ohio State University) is Associate Professor of Political Science at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. He has been teaching "Gay and Lesbian Politics" there since 1984.

From Library Journal:

Gay liberation is the youngest of the movements covered in the "Historical Dictionaries of Religions, Philosophies, and Movements" series edited by Jon Woronoff, of which this is number 22. A brief chronology charting significant events from 1864 to 1999 precedes a 28-page introduction describing three distinct periods: the early homosexual rights movement centered in Germany; the modern homosexual rights movement beginning after World War II in Britain, France, the Netherlands, and North America; and the contemporary gay and lesbian rights movement marked by the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York, now international in scope. Hunt (political science, Ohio State Univ.) "focuses on the impact of gay and bisexual men (and their allies)" with promises of a subsequent volume tracing the role of lesbians. The alphabetical entries describe key organizations, their leaders, and the issues and strategies of numerous countries worldwide. Fifty pages of bibliographical references complete this valuable volume. Recommended for specialized collections.AJames E. Van Buskirk, San Francisco P.L.
