"From her work with UNESCO, Dr Tiffany Jones is qualified to write with authority about GLBTIQ policy. The book's promise to problematize the power of policy provides a much needed perspective on international and Australian GLBTIQ policy, interrogating the assumption that GLBTIQ policy is an unquestioned good. The topic is clearly timely and the international focus is important given the contemporary and widely varying discourses and actions surrounding the rights of GLBTIQ individuals and groups across the globe. The use of Australian as a particular case study is also wise as moving between the general to the particular can be daunting without some sort of specific grounding in geographical context. Australia provides that grounding so that Dr. Jones can move her examination of policy across the international through Australia to particular schools and individuals. In contested social issues and conditions, such as those surrounding issues of GLBTIQ rights and sexuality education, the chance to hear the voices of those for whom policy is intended is the most powerful. This book will appeal to both policymakers and academics."

"This book is a very exciting and important project that examines extensively the policy issues surrounding GLBTIQ policy issues, and a very thorough study of policy efficacy. It will appeal to university professors, researchers who study policy or GLBTIQ issues, policy analysts, international scholars, law-makers. I'm very impressed. I look forward to buying the book!"
