Front Cover
Kenneth Plummer
Taylor & Francis, 1992 - Social Science - 281 pages
"Beyond Homosexuality is a unique collection of nineteen essays by international activists and academics which document and analyze the dramatic changes in lesbian and gay experience over the past twenty years. The collection explores such topics as the growth of lesbian and gay studies, new patterns of lesbian sexuality, the relationship between lesbians and gay men, the debate over lesbian motherhood, the rise of renewed political campaigning in the face of a "backlash," and the impact of AIDS. While the focus of the book is the distinctive modern experiences found in Western countries, there are also essays on Turkey and MesoAmerica. It will be required reading for lesbian and gay scholars, and will be a landmark in consolidating past debates and suggesting pathways to the future."--Publisher's website.
