Transgender History ($9, Seal Studies)
Trans author Susan Stryker's 2008 primer covers American transgender history from the mid-twentieth century to today like a high school textbook, with chapters on transsexualism post World War II and the '70s introduction of the era of identity politics. Transgender History also includes major speeches, bios, and excerpts from transgender memoirs.
