KBOO-FM, THE HEATHER MCCOY SHOW (PORTLAND, OREGON) -- In a phone interview, San Francisco State University Professor Marc Stein discusses his new book “The Stonewall Riots: A Documentary History” (NYU Press) and research techniques. “In the classroom sometimes I riff on Judge Judy and how she always rules out anything that she would classified as hearsay,” Stein says. “In a sense, that’s what we do as historians. We want to see the materials from the past and not necessarily trust what other people have said about whatever event we’re describing.”
