Law and Sexuality

The Global Arena

2001

Carl Stychin and Didi Herman, editors

Law and Sexuality

A unique, international look at the intersection of law and the most personal of rights.

Law and Sexuality brings together leading scholars from four continents to consider topics ranging from Tasmanian sodomy laws to the South African constitution, from domestic partnership in Hawai`i to London’s urban geographies. Encompassing a broad spectrum of perspectives, from literary analysis and postcolonial studies to feminist, queer, and critical race theory, their analysis maps the current state of the global intersections between law and sexuality and social change.

Contributors: Heather Brook, Richard Collier, Derek Dalton, Pierre de Vos, Jonathan Goldberg-Hiller, Patrick Hanafin, Emma Henderson, Adrian Howe, Rebecca Johnson, Thomas Kuttner, Derek McGhee, Leslie J. Moran, Wayne Morgan, Oliver Phillips, Jennifer Spruill, Claire Young.
