Chauncey sheds light on an important part of U.S. history,
By A Customer
This review is from: Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940 (Paperback)
George Chauncey's study into the gay male world of early 20th century New York is a fascinating, entrancing history. He proves wrong the notion that pre-Stonewall gay male subculture exists. Chauncey's book is an intricate, well-written, and accomplished piece of work, and one can easily see why it has been so lauded with accolades. This book is highly recommended.
