Review:

Issues involving gay rights have a tendency to separate those who normally fall on opposing sides and join those who are usually at odds. Both Clinton and Dole, for example, have supported a recent bill in the Senate to allow other states the right not to recognize same-sex marriages made in Hawaii. Eskridge, a Georgetown University professor, has produced a thoughtful book on this polarizing issue, taking the position that Americans should extend the right of legal marriage to same-sex couples because of the civilizing influence of the marriage bond.

About the Author:

William N. Eskridge, Jr., is a professor at Georgetown Law Center in Washington, D.C. He was co-counsel in a prominent gay-marriage case in federal circuit court. He lives in Washington, D.C.
