This collection of essays takes stock of the 'new British queer history'. It is intended both for scholars and students of British social and cultural history and of the history of sexuality, and for a broader readership interested in queer issues.
In offering a snapshot of the field, this volume demonstrates the richness and promise of one of the most vibrant areas of modern British history and the complexity and breadth of discussion, debate and approach. It showcases challenging think-pieces from leading luminaries alongside some of the most original and exciting research by established and emerging young scholars. The book provides a plethora of fresh perspectives and a wealth of new information, suggests enticing avenues for research and - in bringing the whole question of sexual identity to the forefront of debate - challenges us to rethink queer history's parameters.
