Loue (School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve U., Cleveland, Ohio) brings together a collection of writing--scholarly chapters, personal essays, and poems--reflecting a spectrum of men who have sex with men (MSM) from a range of ethnic communities in the U.S. The 23 contributors include health researchers, health care providers, and community activists, as well as individuals offering first-person perspectives on minority MSM. Following an opening chapter defining who is "MSM" and comparing self-definition and other-definition, the remaining sections explore health issues and effects--sexual abuse and its aftermath, body image disorder, mental illness and substance abuse, homelessness, HIV/AIDS and HIV- related stigma--and describe a community-focused, rights-based program in Cleveland. For professionals and students in public health, social workers, and interested general readers. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
