The Stranger Next Door: The Story of a Small Community's Battle Over Sex, Faith, and Civil Rights Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fascinating look at the psychology of fear and persuasion.

--Monica Drake, The Oregonian

With strong on-the-ground research and lucid analysis, Arlene Stein sets out to discover why the people of a town with no apparent queer population were hell-bent on getting rid of those individuals' special rights.

The Stranger Next Door's contemporary subject and theoretical breadth coupled with a remarkable lack of jargon should make it a sociological classic.... A wonderful companion to an introductory sociology course, as well as courses on theory, sexuality, deviance, inequality, and religion

.--Mary Bernstein, American Journal of Sociology

By combining the meticulousness of an ethnographer with a writer's commitment to storytelling, Stein has written a book that's surprisingly compelling-or, better, compelling because it's surprising.

--David L. Kirp, The Nation

Book News Annotation:

Stein (sociology, University of Oregon and Rutgers University) tells the fictionalized story of a rural Oregon town and its encounters with prejudice and paranoia when a conservative Christian organization convinces citizens that lesbians and gays are taking over the town and demanding special rights.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
