Revue de presse :

"Monumental...a vital achievement in redefining and reassessing gay history."―Washington Post

"One of the most fascinating works of American social history I've ever read."―Frank Rich, New York Times

"A first-rate book of history...about all urban life, telling us as much about the heterosexual world as about the homosexual one."―New York Times

"A stunning contribution not only to gay history, but to the study of urban life, class, gender--and heterosexuality."―Kirkus

"Gay New York isn't just the definitive history of gays in New York from 1890 through 1940; it's also a wonderful account of the metropolitan character of modern gayness itself."―L.A. Times

"A brilliantly researched gift of history...unassailable."―Boston Globe

"A brilliant ethnographic analysis."―The Nation

"The impact made by this richly textured study is powerful."―Publisher's Weekly

"It's the fun, more than anything--the pleasure, the parties, the high jinks, the sex, and, yes, the love that gay men bear one another--that shines through so brightly...[a book of] erudition, discernment, sympathy, and wit."―New York Observer

"Chauncey's genius is the way he combines real lives and theory...a sharp and readable analysis of the way boundaries between 'normal' and 'abnormal' men bent and blurred in the early parts of the century."―Out

Présentation de l'éditeur :

The award-winning, field-defining history of gay life in New York City in the early to mid-20th century
Gay New York brilliantly shatters the myth that before the 1960s gay life existed only in the closet, where gay men were isolated, invisible, and self-hating. Drawing on a rich trove of diaries, legal records, and other unpublished documents, George Chauncey constructs a fascinating portrait of a vibrant, cohesive gay world that is not supposed to have existed. Called "monumental" (Washington Post), "unassailable" (Boston Globe), "brilliant" (The Nation), and "a first-rate book of history" (The New York Times), Gay New Yorkforever changed how we think about the history of gay life in New York City, and beyond.

Description du livre Basic Books (AZ). Paperback. Etat : New. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.8in. x 0.7in.George Chaunceys innovative and prodigiously researched Gay New York belies the myth of the pre-Stonewall closet and unearths a thriving gay culture in Gotham in the half-decade before World War II, before the decline of the fairy and the rise of the closet. (23) Contrary to Whiggish notions of severe homosexual repression up until the liberating 1970s, Chauncey argues that the gay male world of the prewar years was remarkably visible and integrated into the straight world in the first decades of the twentieth century. (12) In fact, it was not until after the close of Prohibition that new social norms and cultural anxieties forced a restructuring of urban gay life. To use the modern idiom, Chauncey writes, the state built a closet in the 1930s and forced gay people to hide in it. (9)Chaunceys book is rife with fascinating insights and conclusions, perhaps none so immediately surprising as the discovery that in important respects the hetero-homosexual binarism, the sexual regime now hegemonic in American culture, is a stunningly recent creation. (13) Tracing the rise of the word gay to encompass all homosexual men (be they previously classified as queers, fairies, trade or another term now considered much more perjorative), Chauncey argues that the ascendancy of gay reflected. . . a reorganization of sexual categories and the transition from an early twentieth-century culture divided into queers and men on the basis of gender status to a late twentieth-century culture divided into homosexuals and heterosexuals on the basis of sexual object choice. (23) Put another way, Chauncey argues that homosexual behavior per se became the primary basis for the labeling and self-identification of men as queer only around the middle of the twentieth century; before then, most men were so labeled only if they had displayed a much broader inversion of their ascribed gender status by assuming the sexual and other cultural roles ascribed to women.
