Cook and Evans' anthology offers a rich analytic assemblage of urban queer culture in Europe from 1945 to the present time ... This (reasonably priced) anthology serves as sound multidisciplinary textbook for students and scholars who want to gain multifaceted historical understandings of the dynamic interrelationships between queer, space and sociability in urban Europe and the intrinsically ambivalent and shifting mindsets about queer citizenship. -- Martin Zebracki, University of Leeds, UK * Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography * Despite different approaches, each contributor provides an informative narrative that identifies key factors in a city's queer history: e.g., the memorialization of Nazi persecution of gays in Berlin, the fallout of the `sexual revolution' and Amsterdam's reputation as a tolerant `gay capital,' the mixing of Western secular and Muslim cultures in Istanbul, and life in Madrid as it moved from dictatorship to democracy ... A strong collection and a good introduction to contemporary European queer history. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. -- B. Lowe, Florida Atlantic University * CHOICE *
