This reference features over 500 topics more than half of which are biographies about issues, events, concepts, and figures pertinent to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender history in the US. The entries are directed at beginning undergraduates and the general reader. Among the entries on general topics are advertising, bookstores, Arab Americans, boycotts, churches, coming out, dance, economics, geography, language, and suicide. Profiles of the LGBT histories of several US cities and states are featured, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Michigan, Mississippi, and Portland (Ore.). A sampling of the figures whose biographies are included are Leonard Bernstein, Rachel Carson, Mary Daly, Ruth Ellis, Barney Frank, Jasper Johns, Carson McCullers, and Liberace. Volume 3 contains a major appendix listing repositories with LGBT materials in the US and Canada and a very thorough index. The selection of the entries and often self-consciously theoretical approaches of their writers reflect the ongoing, continually developing nature of this new field. The writers teach at American universities in fields that include American studies, cultural studies, gender studies, history, history of science, legal studies, LGBT studies, and literature. Editor Stein is at York U., Canada. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
