Editorial Reviews

Christopher Capozzola
For historians, these essays offer a careful accounting of the history of politics that is attentive to actors, institutions, and policy constraints.
Booknews
Ten original essays place the current debate over homosexual military service in its historical, theoretical, political, and policy context. They discuss parallels between policies on race on sexuality, the effects of Bill Clinton's 1994 Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, the threat of gay men to military identity, and other dimensions. A preface by Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer and the court opinions of her cases are also included. Paper edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
