"Gaylaw is a panoramic exploration of the many issues that are now part of our public discourse about the place of homosexuals in American society. Eskridge is a leading "gaylegal" scholar, and this book is a thoughtful, insightful analysis not only of the country's changing mind-set about regulating same-sex attraction, but also of the constitutional bases for protecting sexual intimacy from state intrusion. He draws on many sources, and more than one-quarter of the book comprises supporting appendixes and endnotes. He has assembled comprehensive tables of statutory enactments and statistics about criminal arrests, military discharges, and other governmental enforcement efforts...Eskridge's book is a valuable contribution to the dialogue on this and a host of other questions our society will grapple with as the closet crumples and gay people press for equal standing in the eyes of the law."
