Same-Sex Marriage: The Personal and the Political

by Kevin Alderson, Kathleen A. Lahey, Richard Almonte (Editor)
 


The same-sex marriage phenomenon is characterized on one hand by intense personal joys and on the other by longstanding activism and historic legal reasoning. Same-Sex Marriage tells both stories: the experiences of couples who have been able to marry, and the stories behind the scenes that explain how the legal battle has finally been fought.
