By, Terri Schlichenmeyer

In the newly updated book Transgender History by Susan Stryker, you’ll see how the transgender movement started and where it goes next. Though Transgender History is a revised edition of a book first published a decade ago, it has a fresh feel. It’s breezy and casually readable. There’s no stuffiness here and no air of the scholarly. Stryker makes this history accessible for people who want a story and not a textbook. For anyone who wants a basic, yet lively, overview of trans life in America, Transgender History is a great start.

Transgender History: The Roots of Today’s Revolution, Revised Edition is written by Susan Stryker and published by Seal Press.
