Perseus Publishing
For the past fifty years, prize-winning historian Martin Duberman’s groundbreaking writings have established him as one of our preeminent public intellectuals. Founder of the first graduate program in LGBT studies in the country, he is perhaps best known for his biographies of Paul Robeson, Lincoln Kirstein, and Howard Zinn?works that have been hailed as ?magnificent” (USA Today), ?enthralling” (The Washington Post), ?splendid” and ?definitive” (Studs Terkel, Chicago Sun-Times), and ?refreshing and inspiring” (The New York Times).

Duberman is also an equally gifted playwright and essayist, whose piercingly honest memoirs Cures and Midlife Queer have been called ?witty and searingly candid” (Publishers Weekly), ?wrenchingly eloquent” (Newsday), and ?a moving chronicle” (The Nation). His writings have explored the shocking attempts by the medical establishment to ?cure” homosexuality; Stonewall, before and after; the age of AIDS; the struggle for civil rights; the fight for economic and racial justice; and Duberman’s vision for reclaiming a radical queer past from the creeping centrism of the gay movement.

The Martin Duberman Reader assembles the core of Duberman’s most important writings, offering a wonderfully comprehensive overview of our lives and times?and giving us a crucial touchstone for a new generation of activists, scholars, and readers.
