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

"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

"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

"One of the most important books about lesbians and gays to emerge since Stonewall."
--Seattle Weekly

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

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

"Duberman's best book yet...No one has mined sources as extensively to tell the story of Stonewall."
--The Advocate

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

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