Affirming that sexuality and queer inquiry in particular are relevant in times of "unthinkable destruction" to discussions in diverse academics fields and current politics, Haggerty (English, U. of California, Riverside) and McGarry (history, UC, Riverside) present two dozen new essays by established and emerging US scholars. Representing queer historiography, the anthology includes analyses of cultural war issues; media representations (e.g., Brokeback Mountain); Sontag on "camp"; and histories of sexualities as they intersect with gender identities, feminism, race, and globalization; and an interview with Judith Butler. Illustrations include a Robert Mapplethorpe flower painting, and photos relating to Gay Pride festivities and the "war on terror." Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
