Praise for the previous edition:
"Kranz and Cusick...have taken on the daunting task of compiling a succinct, one-volume overview of gay rights in America...[and] have successfully covered the topic here...this work may provide a foundation for further research for both general readers and academic and public libraries."óLibrary Journal

President George W. Bush's attempts to pass a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage prompted fierce debates and made it clear that many Americans have very strong opinions on the matter. While gay rights have made huge steps over the past few decades, the struggle for equal rights continues. Gay Rights, Revised Edition is a concise, comprehensive guide to this highly contested topic.

The new edition includes approximately 40 percent new or greatly revised material, especially in the bibliography. The introduction, certain legal cases, the chronology, and appendixes have all been updated to include appropriate events and policy changes since the publication of the first edition. The biographical listings, glossary, and organizations chapters have been updated, and the annotated bibliography has been completely rewritten. Gay Rights, Revised Edition is perfect for anyone interested in issues related to gay rights, including policymakers, administrators, and attorneys, as well as teachers, students, parents, and the general public.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-A somewhat balanced overview of gay rights in the United States. Part I includes the history, laws, culture, significant events, biographical listings, and a glossary that covers an array of terms from a priori to visitation rights. Next, a "Guide to Further Research" offers tips for doing reports, an extensive annotated bibliography, which is slanted toward the pro side of gay rights, and a chapter on GLBT organizations and agencies. Appendixes include excerpts from major court decisions, from statements of government policies and legislation, and from major U.S. historical documents from the gay-rights debate. While this book does include a great deal of accurate information, there are some omissions. For instance, Ellen DeGeneres is included in the biographical listing but Melissa Etheridge, a pioneer activist in the entertainment industry, is not. OutProud is not among the many youth organizations listed. Also, the Deaf Queer Resource Center and the James C. Hormel Gay and Lesbian Center are not included. Finally, fact checking is amiss, as many of the organizations and agencies have changed addresses and now have Web sites that are not provided.-Betty S. Evans, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield

From Library Journal:

Kranz (Straight Talk About Smoking) and Cusick, a theater artist and an editor, respectively, have taken on the daunting task of compiling a succinct, one-volume overview of gay rights in America. In three sections, the text presents a topical overview, further research, and appendixes. Part 1 contains a chronology, significant court cases, legal issues, and brief biographical listings of people opposed to and in favor of gay rights. A notable feature found in Part 2 is the chapter "How To Research Gay Rights," which provides researchers with a much-needed sense of direction. Unfortunately, the authors do not mention the wide network of gay archives across the United States. Because the series is titled "Library in a Book," this reviewer was concerned that Gay Rights might be overreaching its goal, but the authors have successfully covered the topic here. While not a scholarly tome, this work may provide a foundation for further research for both general readers and academics. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.DMichael A.
