About this product
- DescriptionLiberal Constitutionalism, Marriage, and Sexual Orientation: A Contemporary Case for Dis-Establishment uses constitutional theory and political philosophy to shed light on an elusive feature of American jurisprudence: the establishment of a sectarian preference in the law to the detriment of American citizens who happen to be gay or lesbian and who wish to exercise their fundamental right to marry. Reviewing aspects of liberal-democratic theory, marriage law, and pertinent analogies that deal with the right to marry, Gordon Albert Babst presents the tion of the shadow establishment, which makes the best sense of a constitutional affirmation of bias against same-sex marriage and gay persons in the law.
- Author BiographyThe Author: Gordon Albert Babst is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Chapman University in Orange, California, and is responsible for the curriculum in political philosophy and theory. His research interests have been the status of politically and socially unpopular persons and groups within the legal and political context of the liberal-democratic regime, and his Ph.D. dissertation focused attention on the citizenship status of Americans who happen to be gay or lesbian.
