Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since 1958, twenty-five men and two women have forced the Supreme Court to consider whether the Constitution's promises of equal protection apply to gay Americans. Here Joyce Murdoch and Deb Price reveal how the nation's highest court has reacted to these cases--from the surprising 1958 victory of a tiny homosexual magazine to the 2000 defeat of a gay Eagle Scout. A triumph of investigative reporting, Courting Justice gives us an inspiring new perspective on the struggle for civil rights in America.

Synopsis:

A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the U.S. Supreme Court... [T]hose interested in the changing role of gay people in American society will find it indispensable.--Washington Post

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 561-563) and index.
