It traces both the intellectual arc and larger theoretical implications of the field, including Queer Theory, which emerged from this scholarship in the early 1990s. Edited by Michael Bronski, a world-renowned, leading scholar in the field, the four volumes cover theory, the pre-modern period, the modern era and contemporary times. As well as substantial contextualizing editor introductions for each book, there are 64 individual essays included across the set, with relationships, identity, community, politics and LGBT around the world all key topics at the heart of this vital collection. This is an essential resource for all scholars interested in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history and LGBT studies more generally.
