Most of the 17 essays presented here were initially delivered in conference paper form at the National Lesbian and Gay Studies Conference or at various professional associations; some were commissioned specifically for this volume. The essays cover "at least a portion of the work currently being done in a variety of mediums (literature, film, video, music, photography) across a spectrum of theoretical approaches (psychoanalysis, deconstruction, semiotics, discourse theory)." For readers unfamiliar with the particularities of each discipline, the jargon-laden, cumbersome texts, extensively footnoted, may be overwhelmingly daunting, no matter how fascinating the topics addressed. For subject collections only.- James E. Van Buskirk, San Francisco P.L.

This is the first anthology to offer full-strength, state-of-the-art lesbian and gay theory in all its immediacy, all its sophistication. `Theory' means something new in the hands of these two generations of passionate activist/intellectuals --Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, author of Epistemology of the Closet
