Andrew Reynolds con The Children of Harvey Milk

Críticas In a labor of impressive scholarship, Reynolds ... demonstrates that LGBTQ individuals serving openly in the political realm have been the major instigators of this change. He makes his point in a collection of historical, exciting, and moving stories ... Highly recommended. (J. Goins, CHOICE)A unique look at how politics affect the LGBTQ community and the LGBTQ politicians that help bring about the changes needed for the community. Reynolds does an excellent job at not only looking at past politicians, but current game changes as well (The Over the Rainbow Booklist committee of the American Library Associations GLBT Round Table)In this remarkable book, Andrew Reynolds shows us the global breadth and depth of the movement for equal rights among LGBTQ people. Reynolds shows us that the movement is world-wide, producing courageous leaders in countries that we might never imagine gay people coming forth, asserting their identities, and claiming their citizenship. This is a work of extraordinary scholarship and it provides us with a bracing dose of hope at a time when democracy itself is facing world-wide threats. (Kenneth Sherrill, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Hunter College, New York)Andrew Reynolds' stunning book shows us the struggles-and failures-of the LGBTQ political movement worldwide, from Africa to the Caribbean. This is the story of our times: begun by Harvey Milk, and now carried on around the globe. Gripping, sobering, and inspiring. (Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of Sheâs Not There and Long Black Veil)Electing LGBTQ people to office is critical to moving equality forward. In The Children of Harvey Milk, Reynolds inspires and empowers as he traces the history of LGBTQ rights through the eyes of those who dreamed big, shattered barriers, and helped advance equality in the halls of parliaments and legislatures around the world. (Chad Griffin, President, Human Rights Campaign)Andrew Reynolds captures the enormous progress LGBTQ people and candidates have made since Harvey Milkâs run for office more than four decades ago â and demonstrates that LGBTQ political power is critical to advancing equality for our community. Few can match Reynoldsâ exhaustively researched LGBTQ political knowledge, and The Children of Harvey Milk will certainly become a key reference on the history of our movement. (Mayor Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Fund)This is political biography at its best. By reviewing the careers (and self-reflections) of politicians who devoted themselves to advance LGBT rights from around the world, Reynolds illustrates the idea that the struggle for LGBT rights faces universal as well context-specific challenges. Reynolds's central claim is that gay rights don't emerge by themselves. They require the courage, astuteness, and perseverance of dedicated politicians to make them happen. (Javier Corrales, Professor of Political Science, Amherst College)A must read in an era of relativism and complacency. In The Children of Harvey Milk, Andrew Reynolds reveals the political heroes and the personal journeys who contributed and are contributing to a radical shift in public attitudes on LGBT rights in parts of the World. Reynolds sensibly paints the way LGBT leaders excel in turning their personal hardship in the precursor to beauty and triumph. More importantly, Children of Harvey Milk identifies ingredients of a recipe for a much-needed global social change starting with political participation and representation of LGBTI people. (Fabrice Houdart, Human Rights Officer at the United Nations Human Rights Office)Andrew Reynolds tells inspiring stories of peopleâsome familiar, some notâwho were courageous enough to say âthis is who I amâ and fight for a place at the table. They helped bring a community out of the shadows and into the light in ways both large and small. (Jim Obergefell, co-author of Love Wins and named plaintiff of the marriage equality decision Obergefell v. Hodges)Andrew Reynoldsâ The Children of Harvey Milk is a compelling work of LGBTQ history and at the same time a clarion call for queer people to resist, to reformâand to get involved in politics. The bookâs true heart and soul are the stories of the army of LGBTQ politicians who have transformed our world in the decadeâs since Milks' assassination. A must read for anyone interested in how social change happens. (Steven Petrow, Columnist, USA Today, and Former President, National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association) Reseña del editor Part political thriller, part meditation on social change, part love story, The Children of Harvey Milk tells the epic stories of courageous men and women around the world who came forward to make their voices heard during the struggle for equal rights. Featuring LGBTQ icons from America to Ireland, Britain to New Zealand; Reynolds documents their successes and failures, heartwarming stories of acceptance and heartbreaking stories of ostracism, demonstrating the ways in which an individual can change the views and voting behaviors of those around them. The book also includes rare vignettes of LGBTQ leaders in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean who continue to fight for equality in spite of threats, violence, and homophobia. A touchstone narrative of the tumultuous journey towards LGBTQ rights, The Children of Harvey Milk is a must-read for anyone with an interest in social change. Ver Descripción del producto
