With the disappearance of stand-alone book review sections in many newspapers and a drastic drop in the number of reviews in magazines, scholars have few timely ways to keep up with the latest books in the humanities and social sciences. H-Net's Book Channel is a state-of-the-art solution: A book discovery service that fills a crucial void.

How should historians discuss LGBT+ history in textbooks?

Book Channel readers may be interested in an ethical and methodological question posed by Theresa Harrington for The Atlantic"Should history textbooks 'out' LGBT figures?"

Harrington cites a new California law to adopt K-12 history textbooks that highlight the contributions of LGBT people. The conundrum, of course, is how to discuss the identities of people who would not have referred to themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, etc. during their own lifetimes.
