John Corvino
Rowman & Littlefield, 1997 - Psychology - 394 pages
Same Sex is the most comprehensive anthology on homosexuality available. It goes beyond other classroom readers to explore historical conceptions of homosexuality, homosexual identity, and a variety of public policy issues, ranging from gay marriage to outing to military service. It also examines the issues from ethical, religious, and scientific perspectives. While the authors represent a wide range of opinions on homosexuality, the anthology cuts through the emotional fervor surrounding homosexuality to offer reasoned, lucid discussion of the issues.
