The Concise Encyclopedia of Homosexuality


Not long after the appearance of the two-volume Encyclopedia of Homosexuality in 1990, a New York editor, Mark Chimsky, suggested that a shorter version be prepared as an economical paperback.

After the conclusion of some complex negotiations, the work of revision and condensation was undertaken by the late Stephen Donaldson (Robert A. Martin). With considerable journalistic experience, Donaldson had contributed a good deal of work on the original Encyclopedia. He chose to commission new articles, many of real value. For this reason, the Concise Encyclopedia of Homosexuality is still worth consulting today.

Unfortunately, Donaldson did not proceed expeditiously. When the original Encyclopedia of Homosexuality was attacked by a leftist cabal, its offspring was endangered and, indeed, the publisher canceled it. The Concise Encyclopedia of Homosexuality lives on, we are proud to say, in its present electronic form.
