Publisher's Summary

The basis of the PBS American Experience documentary Stonewall Uprising 

In 1969, a series of riots over police action against The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, changed the longtime landscape of the homosexual in society literally overnight. Since then the event itself has become the stuff of legend, with relatively little hard information available on the riots themselves. Now, based on hundreds of interviews, an exhaustive search of public and previously sealed files, and over a decade of intensive research into the history and the topic, Stonewall: The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution brings one of history's most singular events to vivid life.

Wow! Learned a lot

This has been one of the most enjoyable history books I’ve ever “read”. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is because history books lose me some time. But this one gripped my attention most of the time and taught me so much

Stonewall

This was an excellent book. The background about early gay rights was enlightening. Solid narration as well. Overall, an excellent listen.
