A highly readible and interesting personal story on transgender history by transgender actitivst Leslie Feinberg. In the book they trace transgender lives, identities, and expressions through history - intertwined with the personal narrative of the author. They also provide a theoretical framework, explaining polticis behind transphobia, -opression and transactivism. ( )

"[Transgender Warriors] leaves us with a sense that a transgendered concept of what it is to be fully human and psychologically whole is both valid and nothing new. A brief review cannot do justice to this amazing resource, not only for our communities, but for the world. -- Patricia Roth Schwartz, Lambda Book Report." -- Back cover.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0807079413, Paperback)

Leslie Feinberg has been a leader in the transgender rights movement as long as such a movement has existed. This book is both deeply personal and widely researched. Feinberg examines perceptions of the body, the status of clothing, and the structures of societies that welcome or are threatened by gender variance. The portrait gallery that closes the book contains photographs and capsule biographies of contemporary transgendered people.

Feinberg examines use of language, perceptions of the body, the status of clothing, and the structures of societies that welcome or are threatened by gender variance, uncovering persuasive evidence that there have always been people who crossed the cultural boundaries of gender. The portrait gallery that closes the book contains photographs and capsule biographies of contemporary transgendered people.… (more)
