Reviews

"A wide-ranging and scholarly collection of articles that cross academic disciplines, historical periods, cultures, and nations." -- Booklist/RBB

"The Encyclopedia is a thorough, well-researched and for the most part impressive collection of notes on the who, what, where, why, and when of lesbians…The cross-cultural entries are some of the best I've seen in a project of this nature. For those entries alone, the Encyclopedia would be a fruitful addition to any home." -- Girlfriends

"Thumbs up to Haggerty… …fills a growing need for extended treatment of issuses relevant to the histories and cultures of lesbians and gay men." -- Booklist

"…nothing short of a landmark publication…" -- Choice Magazine

"…a wonderful new source. recommended for all general reference collections." -- Choice Magazine

"…fine scholarly works that belong in the reference section of every library." -- Library Journal
