Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Homosexuality is not a subject that has lent itself to level-headed discussion. Here, an important group of philosophers, scientists, theologians, and historians explore the controversies surrounding the subject. SAME SEX will prove to be essential reading for anyone interested in moving beyond sidewalk polemics toward a better understanding of gays, lesbians, and the various debates surrounding them.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 345-382) and index.
