On June 28th, 1969, the Stonewall, a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village, was raided. But instead of the routine compliance expected by the police, patrons and a growing crowd decided to fight back. The five days of rioting that ensued changed forever the face of gay and lesbian life. This book tells the story of what happened at Stonewall, recreating those nights in detail through the lives of six people who were drawn into the struggle for gay and lesbian rights. Their stories combine into a portrait of the repression that led up to the riots, which culminates when they triumphantly participate in the first gay rights march of 1970.

Review:

Praise for Stonewall

"A fascinating account of the birth of gay liberation and a replay of the turbulent, society-changing '60s."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Interesting...instructive...Duberman argues correctly that Stonewall marked a generational, organizational, and ideological shift that brought gay liberation into the array of social protest."--The New York Times Book Review

"Illuminating...a vivid and stirring recreation of the Stonewall riot, probing beneath its symbolism to discover the social forces it unleashed."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"One of the most important books about lesbians and gays to emerge since Stonewall."--Seattle Weekly

"Moving...Duberman rises to history's most crucial challenges as he expertly chronicles how long and tortuous the road to Stonewall actually was."--The Washington Post

"A powerful and compelling book that will make it harder for future 'sixties' books to ignore the gay liberation movement."--The Nation

"Duberman's best book yet...No one has mined sources as extensively to tell the story of Stonewall."--The Advocate

"Duberman's history lesson is like a script to some extraordinary movie...It even has a fascinating cast of secondary characters."--The Boston Globe

"Engrossing...a long overdue look at one of the seminal events in the history of gay activism. Important and absorbing."--Kirkus Reviews
