This little volume by Abbott and Love is a great manifesto and history lesson -- the first half is devoted to the recent history of Lesbians (as the book capitalizes them) and their struggle, while the second looks more towards the future. Particularly interesting as an analysis of the intersection of Women's Lib and Gay Lib. Not a light, fun read, but if nothing else it can make you thank your lucky stars to be living now in these relatively more liberated times.
