A simple matter of justice: theorizing lesbian and gay politics
This stimulating book investigates the intention, meaning and impact of existing concepts of justice regarding the legal status of lesbians and gay men. Contributors attempt to assess whether current ideas of justice are, or can be, relevant to lesbian and gay campaigns against discrimination. Can campaigners work effectively with these ideas, or is a new definition of justice needed for lesbian and gay people?
