With this book Leila J Rupp accomplishes what few scholars have even attempted she combines a vast array of scholarship on supposedly discrete episodes in American history into an entertaining and entirely readable story of same sex desire across the country and the centuries Most extraordinary about Leila J Rupp s indeed short two hundred page history of same sex love and sexuality is not that it manages to account for such a variety of individuals races and classes or take in such a broad chronological and thematic range but rather that it does all this with such verve lucidity and analytical rigor A n elegant inspiring survey John Howard Journal of American History
