“Faderman does a fantastic job at reanimating a story that reminds us that people can be truly tolerant…and that, with will (not money), anyone can effect change. Harvey Milk as seen through fresh, highly knowledgeable eyes.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Exploring the many lives in the journey of Harvey Milk to his place as a transformative progressive politician and gay icon, and connecting his activism to his family history and the ideals of his Jewish identity, this is an essential, concise, up-to-date account of a man whose accomplishments and assassination both challenged and changed the nation. 

Lillian Faderman is a distinguished scholar of LGBT and ethnic history and literature.  She has received numerous awards for her previous eleven books, three of which, Surpassing the Love of Men, Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers,and The Gay Revolution, have been named by the New York Times as “Notable Books of the Year.”
