Selection of literature and research available free to mark Pride month

A rich selection of work on LGBT+ issues from Cambridge University Press has been made freely available to mark Pride Month. 

The carefully selected collection of over 100 book chapters, journal articles and blog posts from some of the world’s leading academics, researchers and authors in the field can be read and downloaded free of charge throughout June. 

It includes Professor Susan Golombok’s book, Modern Families: Parents and Children in New Family Forms, which draws together decades of research to show that the structure of families matters far less for children than the quality of the relationships within them.

Anyone interested in Professor Golombok’s book can find it online, alongside work from the fields of politics, psychology, sociology and law. There are also examples of gay and lesbian literature, research into same sex marriage and LGBT+ rights around the world.

Other highlights include Freedom’s Edge by Professor Frank S. Ravitch. SubtitledReligious Freedom, Sexual Freedom, and the Future of America, the book takes readers directly into the heart of the debate over the relationship between religious freedom, LGBT+ and reproductive rights.

All are being made freely available on Cambridge Core, the online home of academic books and journals published by Cambridge University Press. Subscribers to Cambridge Core gain quick and easy access to more than 34,000 books and more than a million articles from 370 journals. 

There will also be a number of blogs from renowned authors, including Philip Graham, Emeritus Professor of Child Psychiatry at University College London, whose book Men and Sex is part of the collection. There will be a new blog post too from co-editors of The Cambridge Handbook of Sexual Development, Sharon Lamb, who is Professor of Counseling Psychology at the University of Massachusetts, and Jen Gilbert, who is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at York University, Toronto.  

Mandy Hill, Managing Director of Academic Publishing at the Press, said: “Cambridge University Press publishes a plethora of work around LGBT+ issues, across a whole range of academic disciplines.

“These issues are often at the cutting edge of debate about people and society and cover every aspect of human experience. At the same time, there is a rich literary tradition of gay and lesbian writing, which is also represented in our publishing.

“We are very proud of our publishing in this field and delighted to be able to offer this selection free of charge to mark Pride Month.”
