Despite the gains made by gay rights movements throughout the world, there are still areas in which homosexuals and their relationships are targeted as immoral and criminal. Sociolegal Control of Homosexuality, a comprehensive, up-to-date examination of governmental and religious reaction to issues of sexual orientation in regions - such as Asia and the Middle East - not often covered in English language publications, includes:

  • a sampling of international legislation, both proscriptive and liberal
  • the effects of fundamentalist religious movements
  • new scientific information concerning the origin of sexual orientation, and much more! ¬£/LIST¬£

  • `This book should be of great interest to anyone who follows issues related to the control of same-sex havior and identity through legal, social, and policy means. This engrossing book allows the reader to contemplate some of the shifts ... and what future changes might be anticipated in countries around the world. It would be a welcome addition to any bookshelf for the lessons it teaches us about the importance of appreciating and understanding the effects of culture on both social control of behavior and social change.'
