Respectably Queer: Diversity Culture in LGBT Activist Organizations

This is an important book.

Her nuanced and complex case studies demonstrate how difference is contained and domesticated, and provide empirical grounding for the larger theoretical claims about the effects of neo-liberal apolit...

Techniques Of Medieval Armour Reproduction: The 14th Century

Well organized, good details for what it covers. Offers background and reference material resources for all items discussed. Overall outstanding in my opinion.

Aside from making a dvd with videos on how some of the patterning was done, I cannot think of how he could have made it better.
