What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"A remarkable and innovative use of psychological methods to study and understand crucial social problems . . . Voted Out offers us a new model for action research."

-Bonnie R. Strickland,University of Massachusetts at Amherst and former President, American Psychological Association

"One of the quandaries that the plaintiffs in the court challenge to Amendment 2 faced at the outset was how to obtain an immediate injunction to prevent the amendment from taking effect when there was no proof that the enforcement of Amendment 2 would cause irreparable harm. This well-written book provides that proof: without ever having taken legal effect, Amendment 2 took an enormous psychological toll."

-Jean E. Dubofsky,lead attorney for plaintiffs in Romer v. Evans (the case in which the U.S. Supreme Court held Amendement 2 unconstitutional)

"Russell's data is moving and powerful, and I would expect this book to become an essential referent for gay rights activists in the future."
