Stryker provides a great list of supplementary reading and viewing, as she only aims to provide a foundational understanding through this text. Other books go into greater depth on particular demographics within the community or decades within the movement, but Transgender History provides a broad overview of the most significant details. If you have the time to delve deeper it's wise to do so, but if you aren't able to this book equips you with what you need to understand the fundamentals.
Transgender History is enjoyable, thought-provoking, and comprehensive. It is one of the best books I read last year, and I've already recommended it to many people in my life. If trans rights are important to you, you will love this text.
