9781452235288: Finding Out: An Introduction to LGBT Studies

The new second edition of Finding Out: An Introduction to LGBT Studies by Michelle A. Gibson, Jonathan Alexander, and Deborah T. Meem provides readers with an accessible and riveting introduction to lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) studies. Designed as a text/reader to help students understand the growth and development of LGBT identities and the interdisciplinary nature of sexuality studies, the book combines comprehensive introductory and explanatory material with primary readings and artifacts. The authors provide context (from history, literature and the arts, media and politics, and more) to form a coherent framework for understanding the included debates and readings. This emerging field is complex, multifaceted, and interdisciplinary, but authors Gibson, Alexander, and Meem use instructional apparatus, primary readings, and careful organization to create a clear-cut introduction, ideal for today's students.

Review:

“I am most impressed by this book’s blend of comprehensive scope with approachable, intelligent presentation. It provides material valuable for both students new to the field and those taking more advanced courses without excluding either group on the basis of approach or diction . . . I just love this book!” (Sarah-Hope Parmeter 2012-12-06)

“This text will give me a way to teach LGBT issues as central?that is, NOT as tangents, add-ons, or side issues, but as a central area of inquiry . . . This text is by far the best thing I have seen, and it is head and shoulders above any other possibilities.” (Mary Armstrong 2012-12-06)
