MEDIA REVIEWS
"No book traces Humphreys' biography and attempts to decipher fact from fiction as thoroughly as this book."--Valerie Jenness, Professor and Chair of the Department of Criminology, Law and Society, University of California-Irvine

"This book beautifully captures the turbulent events of a complex and intense person. It is written in a clear and readable style and I predict it will become a classic." Martin S. Weinberg, coauthor of "Dual Attraction: Understanding Bisexuality"


"No book traces Humphreys' biography and attempts to decipher fact from fiction as thoroughly as this book." Valerie Jenness, Professor and Chair of the Department of Criminology, Law and Society, University of California-Irvine


"Galliher, Brekhus, and Keys fill in some significant gaps in our knowledge about sociology in the latter part of the twentieth century. Their work is highly relevant to present-day sociology." Gideon Sjoberg, University of Texas at Austin
