Duberman is a giant, too little known. Distinguished professor emeritus of history at the CUNY Graduate School, he was the founder and first director of the first Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (at CUNY). Author of more than 20 books, he is a recipient of the Bancroft Prize, a finalist for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, and biographer of Howard Zinn, Paul Robeson, and Lincoln Kirsten. He is a committed leftist who has never hesitated to criticize the mainstream gay and lesbian organizations with which his work and life have been intimately associated. This collection provides a useful contrast to popular columnist Dan Savage, the sort of writer who could not exist without Duberman. Selections include examples of the many types of writing Duberman is known for, except for his plays. From “The Northern Response to Slavery” to “Cuba” to “Pleasuring the Body: Reflections on Gay Male Culture,” Duberman’s writing is forceful and nuanced. And this is a valuable and most welcome volume. --Michael Autrey
"A provocative collection that is thoughtful in both scope and attention to detail."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
This collection not only serves as a wonderful introduction to Duberman’s writing but is also a fitting tribute to a man who has devoted his life to promoting social change.”
Praise for Martin Duberman:
"A deeply moral and reflective man who has engaged the greatest struggles of our times with an unflinching nerve, a wise heart, and a brilliant intellect."
"Duberman is an unapologetic, uncategorizable, and non-sectarian radical whose constant questioning of conventional wisdomseven on the lefthas made him one of this country's preeminent participants in the political and cultural wars that have riven public life."
"Martin Duberman is known for his unique combination of talentsas a distinguished historian, a talented writer, and an impassioned advocate of gays and other beleaguered members of the human community."
