Stonewall

'“Both a fascinating account of the birth of gay liberation and a replay of the turbulent, society-changing 60s.” —San Francisco Chronicle. “A vivid and stirring recreation of the Stonewall riot, probing beneath its symbolism to discover the social forces it unleashed. Significantly, Duberman doesn’t place Stonewall at the beginning of his study; instead, he reserves it for his penultimate chapter, astutely portraying it as a culmination of two decades of social change during which the fledgling gay movement gradually came into focus.” —Los Angeles Times “Duberman re-examines this event through the vibrant, intertwined portraits of six people—two lesbians, three gay men, one transvestite—whose lives converged at the Stonewall Rebellion and in the militant movement it spawned.” —Publishers Weekly “Often a powerful and compelling narrative that shows how an oppressed minority arrived at a historic moment and changed forever the way they would view themselves and how others would view them.” —Library Journal'
