Brian Powell, Professor of Sociology and Affiliate Faculty of Gender Studies at Indiana University, is reading Another Country: Queer Anti-Urbanism (New York: NYU Press, 2010) by Scott Herring.

“Herring’s award-winning (Lambda Literary Award in LGBT Studies) book offers a powerful and much needed critique of most LGBT scholarship that focuses primarily if not exclusively on the experiences of LGBT people in urban areas. This is a beautifully written and thoughtful book that provides revealing and often surprising insights into the assumptions regarding and the reality of life beyond the city.”
