Sandra Day O'Connor has called the gay rights movement 'the first important civil rights struggle of the twenty-first century'. Recent court decisions to overturn sodomy laws and to recognize gay marriage have emboldened activists, but have also resulted in a tremendous backlash, not the least of which has been a call for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between members of the opposite sex. Through this historical and legal contextualization of these decisions, this book is an integral component for the understanding of an epochal moment in the history of gay rights.H.N.
