0 Reviews
This text offers an understanding of the histories of the contemporary legal tradition and their current operation using specific examples, such as the impact of a court case over an alleged breach of the peace when two men kissed in public. It looks at how legal discourse is constructed to place homosexuality in a very specific band of regulation and focuses on gay and civil rights, equality under the law and social attitudes towards homosexuals.
