Conhecimento Comum



A scholarly book that is extremely readable and exquisitely sourced.

A relatively succinct, yet comprehensive history of lesbian women in America, which also touches on feminism, civil rights and relations between the gay and lesbian communities. As far as I am aware this is the most comprehensive work on lesbian history available. Faderman did extensive research and the book is rife with footnotes and comprised predominately of interviews conducted for this book.

Faderman is upfront about her biases, although her disbelief in "congenitalism" may make modern readers uncomfortable. She does seem to view the 80's as a terminal point in lesbian history, and it would be interesting to see her characterize the 90's and 00's.

Longer review later. I bring tidbits from this book up all the time in discussion lately, and I'm hoping to get Sam to read it, too. Not perfect and I don't agree with everything she says, but very good, well-researched, and SO interesting.
