This textbook provides students with an up-to-date, thorough overview of the historical, political and legal status of sexual and gender minorities in the US. Skillfully synthesising the research of political scientists, political theorists and historians, it describes the history of the LGBT rights movement; chronicles the building of political and legal movements, and the responses to them; examines philosophical debates within and about the movement; and assesses the current state of the politics and policies concerning sexual minorities. In addition to carefully structured analyses and contextual explanations, it provides lists of key terms and discussion questions in each chapter to aid comprehension and fuel classroom debate.
