The law is one of the primary means through which sexuality is constructed, monitored and controlled. In this much needed book, Carl Stychin provides a critical examination of the relationship between law and sexual orientation in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada. The author exposes the connection between the law and sexual control through an exploration of key questions of current interest and controversy. He examines the motivations behind legal restrictions, and the impact on sexual subcultures and dominant society.

About the Author:

Carl Stychin is Lecturer in Law at Keele University.

Review:

"Stychin's book is important because it is . . . the first single-authored book length volume that explains in detail the import of queer theory for legal theory. It is well done because it raises difficult and important political and legal questions without trying to resolve them in a facile manner."
-"The Law and Politics Book Review
"Stychin argues that law is a primary means through which sexuality is constructed, monitored, and controlled, and examines the relationship of law and sexual orientation in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. He analyzes the motivations behind legal restrictions and their impact on sexual subcultures in dominant society and concludes that law remains a powerful tool in the constitution and regulation of identities, as well as in their oppression."
-"Law & Socal Inquiry
