Item #122231 Homosexual Oppression and Liberation. Dennis Altman.

Homosexual Oppression and Liberation

New York: Outerbridge & Dienstfrey/Dutton, 1971. Hardcover. True first of one of the classic texts of the gay liberation movement. When the book was first published in 1971, The New York Review of Books hailed it as "the only work that bears comparison...with the best to appear from Women's Liberation." Long out of print, the book remains a seminal work in the gay liberation movement. Altman examines the different positions promoting gay liberation, and recognizes the healthy diversity in these divisions. Elaborating on the writers of the emergent movement--James Baldwin, Allen Ginsberg, Christopher Isherwood, Herbert Marcuse, Kate Millett, and others--Homosexual suggests that the gay community can nurture a common, progressive movement because of aÊ shared sexuality and experience of a heterosexist society. Inscribed and signed by the author on the title page: "For Red/Best wishes/Princeton/May '81" Fine in fine dust jacket. Item #122231
