Highly Recommended; I Use It In Class
on June 6, 2007
I can't recommend Andrew Sullivan's "Same-Sex Marriage: Pro and Con" highly enough.
It's an anthology, and the pieces excerpted do exactly what the title says: they provide a reader into pro and con positions in the same sex marriage debate. Sullivan is very fair. He really does present a variety of points of view.
The reader is so thorough, after you've read it, you may realize that it would be hard to say anything new on the topic.
In addition to being useful, I found the book fascinating. It's intriguing to read of how marriage between persons of the same gender was conceived long ago in China, or in Medieval Europe. I do use the book in classes I teach, but I also enjoyed reading it.
