<strong/><strong><em>Cruising the Library </em></strong><strong>offers a highly innovative analysis of the history of sexuality and categories of sexual perversion through a critical examination of the Library of Congress and its cataloging practices</strong>. Taking the publication of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's <em>Epistemologies of the Closet</em> as emblematic of the Library's inability to account for sexual difference, Melissa Adler embarks upon <strong>a detailed critique of how cataloging systems have delimited and proscribed expressions of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and race</strong> in a manner that mirrors psychiatric and sociological attempts to pathologize non-normative sexual practices and civil subjects.

Taking up a parallel analysis, Adler utilizes Roderick A. Ferguson's <em>Aberrations in Black</em> as another example of <strong>how the Library of Congress fails to account for, and thereby &#x22;buries,&#x22; difference</strong>. She examines the physical space of the Library as one that encourages forms of governmentality as theorized by Michel Foucault while also allowing for its utopian possibilities. Finally, she offers a <strong>brief but highly illuminating history of the Delta Collection</strong>. Likely established before the turn of the twentieth century and active until its gradual dissolution in the 1960s, the Delta Collection was a secret archive within the Library of Congress that housed materials confiscated by the United States Post Office and other federal agencies. These were<strong> materials deemed too obscene for public dissemination or general access</strong>. Adler reveals how the Delta Collection was used to regulate difference and squelch dissent in the McCarthy era while also linking it to evolving understandings of so-called perversion in the scientific study of sexual difference.

<strong>Sophisticated, engrossing, and highly readable</strong>, <em>Cruising the Library </em>provides us with a critical understanding of library science, an alternative view of discourses around the history of sexuality, and an analysis of the <strong>relationship between governmentality and the cataloging of research </strong>and information--as well as categories of difference--in American culture.
