Gay and lesbian rights: a reference handbook
When it was first published in 1994, "Gay and Lesbian Rights: A Reference Handbook" was acclaimed in "School Library Journal" for taking "a sober and balanced approach in addressing this emotionally charged and complex topic." The new edition shows just how far the nation has come in securing legal protections regardless of sexual orientation--and how far we still have to go.
"Gay and Lesbian Rights: A Reference Handbook, Second Edition" provides a history of the gay liberation and gay rights movements in the United States and other parts of the world. Maintaining the careful approach of the first edition, it addresses a range of current issues from housing and employment discrimination to military service to same-sex marriage and adoption laws. Wholly rewritten, with almost 80 percent new material, it is the ideal introduction to one of the most important civil rights issues in the world today.
