Overview

This innovative and wide-ranging psychology textbook provides a comprehensive overview of the central themes and issues in lesbian and gay male studies.

Garnets and Kimmel have extensively reviewed the published literature — from classical to the most recent — to compile this collection of primary-source articles representing the best current research and theory. The text gives particular attention to identity development, gender differences, ethnic and racial variation, long-term relationships, adult development, and aging. Contemporary topics are also considered, including the debate over "outing," the question of legal recognition of gay and lesbian relationships, parenting, and discrimination in the military. The editors' conclusion calls attention to the need for new models in clinical practice, research, and public policy.
