From Library Journal:
Psychiatrist Green presents the findings of his 15-year study of two groups of boys, one "feminine" and the other conventionally "masculine" in attitude and behavior. Three-fourths of the first group reported being homosexual or bisexual when interviewed in adolescence or young adulthood, while only a single member of the second group reported such orientation. Green recognizes the dangers implicit in a " `recipe' approach to preparing a developmental model of homosexual orientation" and offers instead a complex and multi-factored theory drawing on his clinical experience and statistical analysis. He is not concerned with "preventing" the development of homosexuality but in reducing the anxiety of those frequently stigmatized. Highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.
