Publisher’s Weekly hailed the book “…as intellectually rigorous as it is entertaining.” Bronski is Professor at Harvard University and Senior Lecturer at Dartmouth College. He’s authored numerous award-winning books and has received several awards for "helping improve the lives of LGBT people in the United States."
