Seller ID   8744

328 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "One day in 1955, Time magazine reported that a 'homosexual underworld' had long operated in the staid, solid city of Boise, capital of Idaho...Ten years later, Gerassi finally had the chance to go to Boise and find out (what a town does when such a scandal erupts). He discovered that, indeed, there had been a homosexual underworld, that scores of teen-agers had been involved, that the whole population of Boise had been deeply affected, and that the panic it generated revealed Boisian's mores, psychoses, and attitudes. As Gerassi probed deeper and deeper, he also found that the true causes of the scandal involved politics and economics as much as personal idiosyncrasies and personal ambitions..." 3/4" x 2" light stain/rub in margin of page 139 - from manufacturing process. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, very light rubbing, light edge wrinkling, tiny dent on front hinge. VG/VG-
