Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Loue . brings together a collection of writing - scholarly chapters, personal essays, and poems - reflecting a spectrum of men who have sex with men (MSM) from a range of ethnic communities in the U.S. The 23 contributors include health researchers, health care providers, and community activists, as well as individuals offering first-person perspectives on minority MSM. . For professionals and students in public health, social workers, and interested general readers." (Book News, April, 2008)"Loue . has organized this collection of literature reviews and research studies, interspersed with personal stories, to highlight infrequently studied health and mental health issues, such as childhood sexual abuse, body image disorder, and HIV-related stigma, in MSM. . This book will interest advanced students of public health, health education, and social work, and scholars who integrate qualitative and quantitative methods into their research. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals." (P. Lefler, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (9), 2008)"This is a collection of articles on health issues, mainly from a psychological perspective, of ethnic minority men who have sex with men. . a welcome contribution to the field, given the limited research on this population. . The audience includes undergraduate and graduate students and practitioners. . The strength of the book lies in its focus on ethnic minorities, a perspective not available in other books on gay men's health." (Jesus Ramirez-Valles, Doody's Review Service, August, 2008)
