Same Sex is the most comprehensive anthology on homosexuality available. It goes beyond other classroom readers to explore historical conceptions of homosexuality, homosexual identity, and a variety of public policy issues, ranging from gay marriage to outing to military service. It also examines the issues from ethical, religious, and scientific perspectives. While the authors represent a wide range of opinions on homosexuality, the anthology cuts through the emotional fervor surrounding homosexuality to offer reasoned, lucid discussion of the issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This series of essays and responses makes for a calm, measured debate on the morality of homosexuality and of society's treatment of homosexuals . . . [and] attempts to substitute reason and scholarship for diatribe. * The Instrumentalist *
This is a thoughtful book, one that provides plenty of space for reflection and drawing one's own conclusions-or seeking further information. * National Catholic Reporter *
One welcomes with enthusiasm, therefore, Same Sex, a series of twenty-seven essays which gives space to arguments on both, or more, sides of many of the issues surrounding homosexuality, and genuinely seeks to engage in intellectual debate. * Times Literary Supplement *
Exceptionally comprehensive, admirably balanced, endlessly thought-provoking." -- Bruce Bawer, author of A Place at the Table
[An] extremely useful collection of original pieces and recent classics. -- Chesire Calhoun, Department of Philosophy, Colby College
. . . lucidly distinguishes among nature/nurture, essentialist/constructionist, and determinist/voluntarist . . . -- Susan Henking, Hobart and William Smith Colleges * Religious Studies Review *
