Mann is clearly of the new generation of academics in Sikh studies who do not share the mindset of ‘established’ scholars in the subject. He also combines a deep understanding for his faith, and its traditions, with the need for outstanding academic rigour. This is a fine volume that has been long overdue. Mann has rendered extremely useful service in making the sacred literature readily available. Let us hope the publishers of this volume recognise the need to make it accessible to an audience beyond Sikh specialists.—Gurharpal Singh, Asian Affairs [UK]

Jacket: How To Be Gay, by David M. Halperin, from Harvard University Press

Celebrating Pride Month, Part II

To celebrate Pride Month, we are highlighting excerpts from books that explore the lives and experiences of the LGBT+ community. This second excerpt comes from How To Be Gay, a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, in which David M. Halperin, a pioneer of LGBTQ studies, dares to suggest that gayness is a way of being that gay men must learn from one another to become who they are.
