“For far too long, LGBTQ and sexuality politics have been sidelined, considered less important, less respectable, or less necessary research topics in political science. This expansive, impressive, and needed volume provides a forceful and dynamic response. By bringing together some of today’s leading lights and newest scholars, this anthology illuminates just how central these questions are to our discipline, how they provide rich opportunities to hone our methodological concerns and substantive analysis, how they provide a means to integrate the many subfields of political science, how they can foster links between our discipline and the broader social sciences, and how political inquiry must connect to the ongoing challenges of contemporary intersectional activism, law, and policymaking.”
—Stephen Engel, Author of Fragmented Citizens: The Changing Landscape of Gay and Lesbian Lives
“This volume is both definitive and comprehensive in its treatment of LGBTQ politics. Collectively, the essays encompass a mature and vital area of scholarly inquiry that spans the range of methods, questions, geographic territory, and historical scope of analysis across political science. They illustrate both the independent importance of LGBTQ politics and the ways that understanding LGBTQ politics challenges and strengthens the discipline of political science. A sterling achievement.”
—Julie Novkov, Author of The Supreme Court and the Presidency: Struggles for Supremacy
“For decades, queer scholars assailed an exclusionary US political science. Now, following the groundbreaking intersectional work of feminist political analysis, these three remarkable scholars have crafted a critical reader to mark the arrival of LGBTQ politics at the center of the American discipline’s concerns.Reaching across the LGBTQ political landscape and US structural inequalities, the editors and contributors engage with core concepts for American scholars, students, and activists, then extend the collection’s analysis into the world.”
—Michael Bosia, Co-editor of Global Homophobia: States, Movements, and the Politics of Oppression
“LGBTQ Politics happily upends whatever it is we thought we meant by LGBTQ politics. In addition to the volume’s superb makeovers of the now-usual suspects—marriage equality and public opinion on LGBTQ lives and rights—this reader makes a winning argument that so many not gay vectors of inequality and politicization are of critical import to queer communities and a queerer future. . .comprehensive and commanding.”
—Joseph J. Fischel, Author of Sex and Harm in the Age of Consent
