Reviews

"Faderman has a gloriously fanatical commitment to illuminating and commemorating her subjects. . . . Any revolutionary would be lucky to stand in a light so steady, so searching, and so sure."-Kenji Yoshino, New York Times Book Review, on The Gay Revolution
"Faderman's narrative mixes the personal and the political with great skill; subtly displaying how at a fundamental level, fighting for collective political rights is really just a human yearning for personal happiness, which usually has its roots in compassion."-JP O'Malley, Irish Sunday Independent
"Lillian Faderman has particularly interesting things to say about three themes: Milk's Jewish background, his populist politics, and his death."-Alan David, Jewish Chronicle
"Thanks to Lillian Faderman we know also know about Harvey the secular Jew, who renounced his faith but remained influenced and inspired by liberal Jewish values."-Peter Tatchell, Spectator
"Lillian Faderman offers a fresh and thoroughly documented take on this groundbreaking politician and gay Jewish martyr. In Harvey Milk: His Lives and Death, Faderman seeks to answer two key questions: What influenced Milk's life, and why did he become an American icon?"- Gregg Drinkwater, Western Historical Quarterly
