Product Description


This account of the surveillance of Canadian lesbians and gays in the name of national security is impressive, at once bone-chilling and inspiring. -- David Rayside Left History, 14.2 An important intervention into mainstream studies of Canadian historiography. -- Jack Hixson-Vulpe Canadian Woman Studies, Vol. 29, No. 3 Kinsman and Gentile have taken on an ambitious project both with respect to their topic as well as the scope of more than four decades worth of material. This is an incredibly important piece of work and will be appreciated by those who have a historical interest in national security campaigns and queer history, as well as those who want a history on which to base contemporary resistance to the security campaigns that are still being mounted against many marginalized people today. TOPIA, Spring 2011

From the 1950s to the late 1990s, agents of the state spied on, interrogated, and harassed gays and lesbians in Canada, employing social ideologies and other practices to construct their target people who deviated from the so-called norm as threats to society and enemies of the state. Based on official security documents.
