Editorial Reviews

Review

A rich and rewarding collection of original research that not only demonstrates how the lesbian and gay rights movement has resulted in a degree of political incorporation for its participants but also demonstrates how social movements effect change in the organization of social science knowledge. With these research reports, behavioral political science will no longer be able to ignore the aspirations of lesbians, bisexuals, and gay men without a cost to its credibility. -- Robert W. Bailey Department of Public Policy and Administration, Rutgers University, and author of Gay Politics, Urban Politics: Identity and Economics in the Urban Setting

Sharp and critical analysis of an emerging political movement is what this indispensable book of original research delivers. Filled with sound insights and useful data, the authors in this collection forge new ground in the emerging scholarship on the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender movement. -- Urvashi Vaid author of Virtual Equality: The Mainstreaming of Lesbian and Gay Liberation

Format: Paperback
This anthology made a good effort in trying to chart new territory and wed public policy research with lesbian and gay rights. In this book, researchers theorize whether classic political science or statistical theories have explained or will explain the trends in gay rights. Topics in this text include: the likelihood of gay or lesbian candidates winning office, the proliferation of anti-discrimination laws in the workplace, the tendency of certain voters to support gay rights and certain voters to oppose them, etc. David Segura contributes an important and insightful chapter on whether tactics to increase the number of elected officials of color will conflict with attempts to increase gay political representation. The book ends with a wonderful analysis made in the early 1970s regarding the political effectiveness of gay leadership. In fact, the book's strength is how much it reveals gay political history. In fact too, the latter chapters are much better than the former; the reader may want to read this anthology backwards, rather than forwards. Also, the contributors were from colleges, big and small, throughout the nation. So there's no hint that the work is legit merely because some Yale or Stanford faculty member wrote it. I have a few criticisms of this book. First, it truly is meant for the poli. sci. professor or student; it's not meant for John Doe Gay Man or Jane Doe Lesbian. The book is full of statistical variables, political science jargon, and numerous charts that will confuse un-trained readers. Second, though researchers are prudent in trying to determine who supports gay rights most, some of their findings border on the stereotypical. For example, it says that Jews and women are likely to support gay rights. Then what explains Dr. Laura?Read more ›
