Including more than five hundred abstracts, this updated, revised edition of the base volume, selected as a Choice Outstanding Academic Book for 1988-1989 ("Elegantly argued and eloquently written"), presents a comprehensive annotated bibliography of published and unpublished social science material, theses, journal articles, and books on lesbianism written between 1976 and 1991 in the fields of social work, psychology, sociology, social psychology, anthropology, medicine, law, gender studies, literature, and history. A new introduction studies trends in the literature on lesbians as well as in the lesbian (and gay) movement, and a review of the literature divides it according to various topics. The final analytical essay explores the theme of similarity and difference within a community of sameness, as well as between the heterosexual and lesbian cultures.
