Transgender Rights
5-0 out of 5 stars The Transgender Movement as social movement
This volume of essays conceives transgender as a global social movement for rights, including discussions of law, politics and economics.It is academic in tone, but much of it is accessible to a lay audience.While its essays are wide-ranging, covering such diverse topics as multiculturalism, disability laws and Argentinian concepts of citizenship, there is, to my mind, a theme to these essays: the social contradictions that arise from the attempts of supposedly liberal Western societies to assimilate transgender identity.The title of Jan Morris's gender transition autobiography, "Conundrum," comes to mind.Paisley Currah's discussion of the transgender movement refers to it as one "that seeks the dissolution of the very category under which it is organized." Judith Butler's article about the psychiatric diagnosis of "gender identity disorder" notes that "the price of using the diagnosis to get what one wants is that one cannot use language to say what one really thinks is true." Dean Spade's critique of political economy and thegender compliance it demands discusses how the movement for gender identity non-discrimination constitutes a strategy of normalization that opposes, rather than furthers, the right of gender self-determination central to liberation.

Editorial Review

In the first major book on AIDS, San Francisco Chronicle reporter Randy Shilts examines the making of an epidemic. Shilts researched and reported the book exhaustively, chronicling almost day-by-day the first five years of AIDS. His work is critical of the medical and scientific communities' initial response and particularly harsh on the Reagan Administration, who he claims cut funding, ignored calls for action and deliberately misled Congress. Shilts doesn't stop there, wondering why more people in the gay community, the mass media and the country at large didn't stand up in anger more quickly. The AIDS pandemic is one of the most striking developments of the late 20th century and this is the definitive story of its beginnings. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Book I Read in 2005
And the Band Played On is an act of phenomenal research and writing, and a very frightening book on many levels because of the political wrangling, political bumbling, and political disregard for a medical crisis which cost the lives of so many, the scientific in-fighting which slowed medical break throughs and sacrificed lives, and the insanity of national agencies which were supposed to be saving lives, but which in this case knowingly risked the lives of many either because they didn't want to do the work, didn't want to spend the money, or didn't want to anger certain political groups.Gay men were deemed to be utterly dispensable by so many.
5-0 out of 5 stars AIDS: A Biography
Good stories work on several levels; they are multi-dimensional views of the same event. To honor the 25th anniversary of the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, I reread Randy Shilts's groundbreaking work, which was published a mere six years after the reports of a `gay cancer' first surfaced at the CDC.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most important books written the previous century
To me this important expose on the begining of the AIDS crises and Reagan's response is extremely important.It's now classic and old information.But it's a valuable history lesson we all must read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What the Bible Really Says about Homosexuality
Good book, packaging ect.. good. Shipping a pain had to be there to sign for a $10.00 book. Would have been easier to order through Barnes and Noble.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tip of the iceberg in the scholarly research in the subject
Prejudice and downright loathing for homosexuals must have inspired the writing of this book. It is a sad realization, in fact, reality, that Bible religion plays a pillar role in allowing the persecution to happen. Sexuality, at least in the regard of showing affection for one another, should be detached from any religious judgment because it is the core of human experience in which person gets emotionally close to another person and commits passionately to the person. Granted the affection is genuine and mutual, it should be recognized and honored regardless of sex. Embracing this firm belief Helminiak thrives to study, through a historically critical perspective, the Bible's stand on the issue.
1-0 out of 5 stars Neither thorough nor honest
As is obvious from his title, Mr. Helminiak believes that he is able to provide special insight regarding Biblical teaching on homosexuality.But he makes clear from the beginning that he does not really care what the Bible says: "As a Roman Catholic - and more importantly, a thinking person - I do not presume the Bible has the last word on sexual ethics" (19).He approaches the Biblical text as though it had no Divine origin whatsoever.He relegates God's description of homosexuality as "abomination" (Lev. 18:22; 20:13; cf. Prov. 6:16) to the Israelites' personal qualms about such activity: "The early Israelites considered it unclean. They thought it was dirty. They prohibited it not because it was wrong in itself but because it offended their religious worldview" (63).Of course, God had no problems with offending the Israelites' religious worldview (cf. Ex. 32).Helminiak will deny authorship of a passage if it conflicts with his prejudice.In asserting that the sin of Sodom was actually "inhospitality," he cites a few passages (including the non-canonical Book of Wisdom) and concludes "The Bible often uses Sodom as an example of the worst sinfulness, but the concern is NEVER simply sexual acts" (49).But in this section, Helminiak fails even to consider Jude 7, which establishes beyond a shadow of a doubt that the sin and punishment of Sodom concerned sexual sins.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hunter's Pursuit is as Good as the Genre Get
Hunter is an enigma - an assasin by trade, but with a gentleness that is enchanting.While hunting for food, she witnesses a car accident.She saves the car's inhabitant.She later finds out that someone has put a million-dollar contract out on her.She has no idea who will come after her, why the contract was put on her, or who her mysterious visitor is.
4-0 out of 5 stars It Came Highly Recommended
I picked up Hunter's Pursuit by Kim Baldwin while in Provincetown for Women's Week in October. I got a personal recommendation from Radclyffe herself. She said, "If you like action/adventure, Kim is our Gerri Hill." Well, I like Hill very much, so I was excited to read this book by Baldwin, especially because of the personal recommendation.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Flames of Love with a Twist...
This reader was pleasantly surprised with the quality of writing delivered by Gina Dartt in `Unexpected Sparks,' a first-time novel that shows a maturity not often found from first-time authors.Not generally a big fan of mysteries, I thoroughly enjoyed the way the author wove a budding romance with a murder investigation... especially because neither of the protagonists are police detectives.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous novel - Wonderful romance and endearing characters
One of the best romances I have ever read. Like a breath of fresh air. Here is a writer who knows how to write. You never feel like you are reading a work of fiction. You are immediately engrossed by the first chapter. The words flow together and I wished it didn't have to end. You'll love the characters as if they were your friends.

4-0 out of 5 stars All in All pretty good
This is a pretty good book in my opinion. Although it does contain unusual grammar that bothered me some. This book explains a lot about Freddie's behavior off stage, outrageous nights, ect... I must warn those of you who want to learn about his childhood, the start of Queen, previous bands, ect... This book does not contain this content what so ever. If you want to know about this stuff, I advise that you buy the DVD called

5-0 out of 5 stars Gender Is The Mine Field That We Pass Through Everyday
The American society polarizes the genders in many different and harmful ways. The polarization has roots in our massive merchandising economy, our religions, our fears, our ignorance and more. Males and females are so polarized in our society that it is truly a tragedy. Actually, males and females are very much the same people who have been exposed to various varying hormone baths starting early in the womb. Some of these hormone baths are natural and some are manmade. In simple terms it is testosterone vs. estrogen. We all have both hormones, but in varying concentrations. After birth we make our own hormones based on our genetic codes and on our exposure to environmental factors.
4-0 out of 5 stars This book highlights the sociopolitical aspect of TG
This book highlights the sociopolitical aspect of transgender.The author says the ultimate solution of transgender is the change of USA's bipolarism society.In Japan, I think the situation is somewhat different.Thebipolarism and homophobia are not so strong.Rather,the phobia for SRS isvery strong.The reason is Japanese think the body is as important as thesoul and cutting off the part of the body is sinful.So , this book alsogave me a chance to think the cultural differences between the twocountries.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant vision and insight
Packed with information and insight, Transgender Nation challenges the rigid gender norms that victimize people who transgress them, while exposing the mechanism that creates the hate which gets turned againsttransgender people.Her illumination of the emerging transgenderliberation movement is unparalleled and piercing, and the book remains asvisionary today as it was when it was published.A 'must read' for anyonewith an interest in transgender politics, it places the blame for theviolent brutality inflicted on transsexuals, transgenderists andcrossdressers squarely on the narrowness of our cultural gender ideals. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A price worth paying for the Cost of this Commitment
This was an absolute jewel of a find. I purchased part one of the series due to a recomendation by Amazon,they could not have been more on target. This book,part two just shows that love is definetly everlasting. I found the story line to be believeable, and being a hopeless romantic, it touched me deeply. The author leaves no stone unturned, giving you mistery, suspense,drama and love all bound in a neat little package all the while leaving room for an on going story. The love senes are hot, and the suspense is action packed, and what makes it perfect is the main characters could be people you know. Looking forward to the next book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Rollercoaster Quality
The pros... I like the story lines presented by Lynn Ames in the Kate/Jay series.They are interesting, keep the reader's attention, and present factual places and things.The characters of Kate and Jay are likable and lead interesting, yet almost unbelievable, lives.The romance is central to the story and is a great compliment to the intrigue presented throughout the book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful! Dramatic!
Katherine "Kate" Kyle and Jamison "Jay" Parker are two strong, dynamic women first introduced to readers in the dramatic book, The Price of Fame.As they try to recover from Kate's unexpected departure from her news anchor position, Jay and Kate unfortunately find themselves, once again, embroiled in a situation fraught with danger, suspicion and intrigue.

I loved this book! Loved the dialogue between the two main characters Jay and Kate andliked the minor characters Fred, Peter and Barbara. I'm an animal person and I like how the characters related to Fred. I wish I had a love like Jay and Kate's, they were so romantic! I like that they had a past together and they believe in true love and finding that special someone. I read this book in 1 day. I just ordered the sequel 'Cost of Commitment' yesterday and when I realized it was a three part series, I ordered 'the Value of Valor' today!

5-0 out of 5 stars Review of "The Price of Fame" by Cheri Rosenberg
Lynn Ames writes in her acknowledgements, "I have always maintained that the best fiction contains elements of truth; as a reader, it's that believability that keeps you turning the pages." The author, a Golden Crown Literary Society Finalist for The Price of Fame, has exceeded her goals in the first installment of the action-packed romance of news anchor Katherine "Kate" Kyle and Time magazine reporter Jamison "Jay" Parker. The Price of Fame is not only convincing but it is hard to put down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful multi-faceted story!
D.C. is an excellent storyteller who doesn't bog the reader down with extraneous descriptiveness. She is able to fully describe settings and put you in the middle of the scene without the unnescessary fluff that so many authors fill their books with. Her stories are fun, exciting, romantic, suspenseful, and captivating all at the same time. Awesome dialogue with laugh-out-loud comebacks and one-liners!

5-0 out of 5 stars Imperceptibly great!
I couldn't put this book down until I finished it!D.C.'s writing style and colorful descriptions paint the most vivid setting in one's mind - I felt like I was there with the characters.D.C. also takes the time to develop the charactes so well that you feel as if you know them yourself.For her first book, D.C. leaves me waiting on pins and needles for her next book.Check out her website at dcelmore.com to see what's up and coming!

The thirty-three year old is adept at surviving in the wild and taking on dangerous assignments to further her career, but when it comes to matters of the heart, Tristin is much more cautious. She is attractive to both men and women and according to those who know her; she could have her pick of dates. If that's true, then why is she single?

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book
an excellent novel - even more so given it's Perkinson's first... I love this book, and read it in two sittings... and in truth, I continue to reread many sections... it has a good story, great characters, humor, sadness, a sweet love story, and a good message... Perkinson's great writing draws the reader into her character's lives and emotions... you can expect to laugh and cry as the story unfolds for Vera, Frankie, and their friends... Vera's Still Point is a compelling and moving story which illustrates how one person can set the ripples in motion for change and instills its readers with the hope that love can prevail over prejudice and hatred... Vera's lesson is one we hopefully all learn - be true to yourself and share it with the world, whether you are understood and accepted or not... I'm anxiously awaiting her next novel, Piper's Someday, due out in 2007.

The story is like a savory creme brulee, which you will find you are wolfing down like a bowl of ice cream.
3-0 out of 5 stars Strange Combination of Feel-good Drama and Scandal
This book was a strange combination of many different things for me.It's scandalous, as others have said.Lots of risqué topics covered that will most likely make you slightly uncomfortable - and details are not spared.It's somewhat generic as well, in that you can pinpoint easily from the start as you meet each character, how their stories will unfold - and most are over-the-top characteurs more than characters.It's also engaging.You will find yourself hooked much like a Lifetime movie will do.You sit down knowing it's full of B-list or washed up actors, the score will be virtually non-existant, direction amateur and the story line something out of a Danielle Steele novel - however you don't change the channel and you bite your nails wondering if Jamie will overcome her annoxeria and if Margo will tell John that little John, Jr is not his son...This book is the similar.
5-0 out of 5 stars The tie that binds
I'm not going to go over the plot of the novel since others have already done that. Having said that, let me also say that Mr. Yates' storytelling style is the best I have encountered in a long time. There were several points in the novel where I stopped and said, "Wait a minute. I gotta read that again. I can't believe he [Yates] did that," simply because he kept dropping little bombshells. Meanwhile, from the very beginning, Mr. Yates lights a fuse that burns through the entire novel as he reveals the true nature of Nathan's and Tommy's relationship. I'm not referring to the most obvious aspect of their relationship (which you can read about yourself), but to Tommy's longstanding ability to exert a positive influence on Nathan's behavior by both word and deed, in spite of appearing to be just a pretty-boy who doesn't give much thought to the possible consequences of his actions. At the same time, Nathan seems to have little or no ability to influence Tommy's behavior, no matter how hard he tries or how morally superior he believes himself to be.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fair and readable account of a controversial subject
The "ex-gay movement" is one of the most controversial and polarizing subjects I know of, but Erzen manages a fair-minded and highly readable account of it.The book is based on her dissertation, the result of field work in an ex-gay ministry in San Gabriel, California, and she presents a not unsympathetic picture of the men (and a few women) involved in it.She also gives an update on the current state of the movement, and how it has moved from self-help groups to political activism in recent years.An interesting analysis explains why it is that the repeated scandals have actually tended to be a positive factor for ex-gays, by increasing public awareness. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Tremendous Breath of Fresh Air
What an absolute joy it is to pick up a book from a first-time published author, especially when the book is a good as `Forever Found.'With many new authors, the writing can be immature and somewhat disjointed.However, Meyer delivers a quality of writing one would expect from a seasoned professional and I ever so excited by it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dallas book an excellent resource
For those interested in understanding the underlying dynamics of homosexual attractions, this book will be a necessary part of your library.The author, Joe Dallas, overcame his homosexual attractions and has been a professional counselor, author and speaker for years on this issue.He is well-educated and compassionate in his approach.No one book explains everything on the issue of homosexuality but I recommend his book first to anyone interested because it gives a great overview in discussion of the general issues.A must read!

5-0 out of 5 stars You CANNOT Be A Christian And Be Gay
Although the subject matter is extremely controversial, Joe Dallas presents a book that deals with homosexuality and the Christian faith; and does so excellently.
5-0 out of 5 stars An inspiring, hopeful book

4-0 out of 5 stars Butler and Agency
Butler is a difficult author to understand, particularly if you don't have a background in theories of performativity. I recommend reading JL Austin's How to Do Things with Words and Derrida's Limited, Inc either before or alongside this book. She also draws heavily from Foucault and Althusser. 2-0 out of 5 stars Irascible Speech
Several years ago, I saw a film entitled Total Eclipse, which is a dramatization of the complex and ill-fated relationship between Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, two nineteenth-century French poets. In one scene, a manic Rimbaud, played by the pubescently-challenged Leonardo Dicaprio, exclaims that "The only unendurable thing about life is that nothing is unendurable" (I may have misquoted this slightly; as I said, its been several years since I saw the film). As I recall, the film was rather silly by and large, although I found that this particular exclamation had the ring of solid truth (incidentally, at the time I had been an autodidactic devotee of Nietzsche's philosophy). I subsequently incorporated it into my own repertoire of pithy aphorisms, held at the ready the appropriate occasion present itself.1-0 out of 5 stars dilettantism at its worst
The results of Butler's attempt to tackle the very serious issue of speech rights are disappointing in the extreme.With no legal background whatsoever and a myopic philosophical vision which seems ingorant of theliberal tradition upon which the right of free speech is grounded, Butlerprovides an obfuscted discussion (and that's all it is, a discussion) ofthe issue that is at the best of times, irrelevant, and at the worst oftimes, offensively misleading.The book is worthwhile only as an exampleof what happens when a postmodern thinker in the French tradition tries totackle a subject outside the race/power/gender/subjectivity canon outlinedby the philosophers of the 1960s.If you have an appetite for readingphilosophical trainwrecks, then by all means read it.If you wantsomething serious on the issue of free speech, look elsewhere. ...

Are you - or a family member - considering or beginning male-to-female or female-to-male transition?You should study this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars CLEAR, COMPREHENSIVE, BRILLIANT, highly readable and useful
"The information contained in this book is SO IMPORTANT THAT NO CLINICIAN CAN AFFORD TO MISS IT. The book offers a clear, comprehensive, and cogent review of the history of the mental health field's thinking about sexuality and gender, and an extraordinarily thoughtful and extensive exploration of assessment and intervention issues with gender-variant people and their families. Lev's knowledge of the subject is phenomenal, and the breadth and clarity of her writing are brilliant. This book lays out an enormous amount of complex material in a highly readable and useful text. . . . BELONGS IN THE LIBRARY OF EVERY PSYCHOTHERAPIST, COUNSELOR, AND HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL." 5-0 out of 5 stars COMPREHENSIVE AND PASSIONATE. . . TERRIFIC. . . LONG OVEDUE
"FINALLY, a book that does justice to the life-changing power of psychotherapy in the transgender coming-out process. I recommend this book to any psychotherapist called to work with transgender clients. I also recommend it to transgender individuals who might benefit from understanding how psychotherapy can play an invaluable role. COMPREHENSIVE AND PASSIONATE. . . . TERRIFIC. . . . LONG OVERDUE."
