Summary, etc.:
"Over the decades, Americans have become increasingly accepting of gay people: in their families, in their communities, and as public figures. This slow but marked shift in attitude has required many pioneers to spearhead the change. Harvey Milk, born in 1930, lived during a time when being openly gay wasn't only not accepted, it was dangerous. Undeterred, Milk, a San Francisco politician, was a cheerful and tireless vehicle for liberation and liberalization. Readers of this engrossing book will be inspired by Milk's courage and humor, and riveted by the details of his tragic death."--Publisher's website.
