9780140174885: Being Homosexual: Gay Men and Their Development (Penguin psychology)

This is a radical and liberal view of the development of homosexuality from a leading psychoanalyst who has worked with homosexual men for many years. The crux of this book's argument centres around the suggestion that homosexuality is constitutional in origin and therefore present from early childhood. This book also discusses the stages and crises of a gay man's life.
