First in this, paperback, edition. First published by The Athlone Press in 2000 as Sexuality in the Legal Arena
From the cover: “What does your sexuality have to do with your status as subject, citizen, or spouse? In our global political economy, this question has moved out of the domestic closet and into the world of public policy, human rights, and cultural norms, and is increasingly mediated, negotiated, and legislated in the legal arena. Prominent scholars of law and sexuality on four continents cross disciplines and national boundaries to explore provocative legal and political issues raised by the cultural, social, and political organization of intimate life. Encompassing a broad spectrum of perspectives, from literary analysis and postcolonial studies to feminist, queer, and race theory, their critical, skeptical, and often pragmatic analysis maps the current state of the global intersections between law and sexuality and social change.
