View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This study brings together 14 polemical essays that focus attention on key debates that are current within lesbian, gay and bisexual politics. Based on a conference held in October 1992 in York, this book is not just another set of conference papers. Rather it reflects the movement from theory to activism, from the "ivory tower to the streets". This comprehensive volume represents the diversity of sexual identities and subcultures that have flourished over the past decade - in particular it gives prominence to the controversial emergence of queer activism, together with the birth of a bisexual politics. Combining work by academics and activists belonging to a variety of fields - including psychoanalysis, political theory, sex education and AIDS research - this is a wide-ranging and interdisciplinary collection that should appeal to many different audiences, both inside and outside the academy. Joseph Bristow is the editor of "Sexual Sameness: Textual Differences in Lesbian and Gay Writing".
