Partly because it has never had…a single stylistic motif, Harvard has become a living museum of almost every trend in the history of American architecture. [This] is the fullest account yet written of Harvard’s buildings…an indispensable narrative and reference.—Robert Campbell, The Boston Globe

All [Bainbridge Bunting’s] strengths are here, most notably his insistence on studying architecture in the broadest cultural and historical context… Floyd has augmented the late Bainbridge Bunting’s manuscript…with her own considerable scholarly knowledge of the subject… The results are exceptional.—Douglass Shand-Tucci, New England Quarterly

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.
