A new book has been launched this week.

The Ashgate Research Companion to Lesbian and Gay Activism

provides scholars and students with a comprehensive and authoritative state-of-the-art review of the current research in this subject. Each of the twenty-two specially commissioned chapters develops and summarises their key issue or debate in relation to activism – that is the claims, strategies and mobilisations (including internal debates and divisions, impediments and state responses)
 – of the lesbian and gay movement. By drawing together leading scholars from political science, sociology, anthropology and history this companion provides an up to the minute snapshot of current scholarship as well as signposting several fruitful avenues for future research. Contributors : Gert Hekma, Julian Jackson, Jeffrey Weeks, Christophe Broqua, Gavin Brown, Mary Bernstein, Lynda Johnston, Gordon Waitt, Julie Podmore, Manon Tremblay, Nicholas Boston, Jan Willem Duyvendak, Kirsten McLean, Janneke van der Ros, Joz Motmans, Miriam Smith, Susan Gluck Mezey, David Paternotte, Hakan Seckinelgin, Phillip M.

For over 40 years I worried about things sociological; now I have time to stand and stare.
