Paperback – Illustrated, May 1, 1994
by Martin Bauml Duberman (Author)

---Brand New Copies--

“A fascinating account of the birth of gay liberation and a replay of the turbulent, society-changing '60s.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Illuminating...a vivid and stirring recreation of the Stonewall riot, probing beneath its symbolism to discover the social forces it unleashed.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

On June 28, 1969, the Stonewall, a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village, was raided. But instead of the routine compliance expected by the police, patrons and a growing crowd decided to fight back. The five days of rioting that ensued changed forever the face of gay and lesbian life.

Renowned historian and activist Martin Duberman now tells for the first time the full story of what happened at Stonewall. With riveting narrative skill, he recreates those heady, sweltering nights in vivid detail through the lives of six people who were drawn into the struggle for gay and lesbian rights. Their stories combine into an unforgettable portrait of the repression that led up to the riots, which magnificently culminates when they triumphantly participate in the first Gay Rights March of 1970. Stonewall is a rare work that evokes with a human touch an event in history that still profoundly affects life today.

Review
Praise for Stonewall

“One of the most important books about lesbians and gays to emerge since Stonewall.”—Seattle Weekly

“Interesting...instructive...Duberman argues correctly that Stonewall marked a generational, organizational, and ideological shift that brought gay liberation into the array of social protest.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Moving...Duberman rises to history's most crucial challenges as he expertly chronicles how long and tortuous the road to Stonewall actually was.”—Washington Post

“A powerful and compelling book that will make it harder for future 'sixties' books to ignore the gay liberation movement.”—The Nation

“Engrossing...a long overdue look at one of the seminal events in the history of gay activism. Important and absorbing.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Duberman's best book yet...No one has mined sources as extensively to tell the story of Stonewall.”—Advocate

“Duberman's history lesson is like a script to some extraordinary movie...It even has a fascinating cast of secondary characters.”—Boston Globe
