BooknewsEskridge (law, Georgetown U.) and Hunter (law, Brooklyn School) believe that gender and sexuality will be the future "crucible" on which equal protection doctrine will be forged, providing a lively, scholarly presentation of pertinent legal documents across a broad range of politically charged legal debates. The reference text considers constitutional, historical and theoretical groundings (heavy on the Foucault) and specific legal conundrums such as whether to publish rape victims' names, the outing of gays and lesbians, issues of family law, sexual harassment, prostitution, obscenity, and transsexual rights. Includes six appendices documenting statutes, ordinances, and provisions to the Constitution, and laws in Wisconsin, Texas, and California. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
