Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Same-sex marriage emerged as a topic of intense public debate in 1996 with the passing of the Defense of Marriage Act. While its prominence in the public eye has waxed and waned since then, court rulings and state legislatures have kept the issue alive in the political sphere, and conservatives and gay rights advocates have made the issue a key battlefield in the culture wars. The Politics of Same-Sex Marriage brings together an esteemed list of scholars who explore all facets of this heated issue, including the ideologies and strategies on both sides of the argument, the public's response, the use of the issue in political campaigns, and how same-sex marriage fits into the broad context of policy cycles and windows of political opportunity.
