`This book offers new insights into such major philosophical issues as the relationship of lesbian to feminist theory and such major practical ones as the case for same-sex marriage. An excellent text for LGBT studies, Women's Studies, and Contemporary Moral Issues courses. Equally accessible to LGBT activists and other interested ethical or political theorists. Beautifully written, scrupulously argued, certain to become a classic! ' Professor Claudia Card, University of Wisconsin
`In this book, Cheshire Calhoun, one of the pre-eminent ethical theorists of our day, turns her careful, creative and analytical mind to a set of questions concerning lesbian and gay rights. Calhoun boldly challenges several central and widely-accepted theoretical and practical claims, most significantly, the applicability of feminist theory to theorizing lesbians and gay men and their social and legal positions and struggles. ' Professor Edward Stein, Cardozo School of Law
