Same-sex Marriage and the Constitution by Evan Gerstmann
Book DescriptionFollowing the widely reviewed success of the first edition, the updated and expanded second edition of Same-Sex Marriage and the Constitution argues that there is a long-standing constitutional protection of the right to marry that applies to same-sex couples. Balancing strong advocacy of this position with respectful engagement with those who oppose same-sex marriage, Evan Gerstmann concludes not only that the Constitution protects same-sex marriage but that it is the proper role of the courts to enforce this right. The book also takes on many of the same-sex marriage myths: that it will lead down that 'slippery slope' to such things as polygamy, that same-sex marriage has been a political albatross for liberals and progressives, and that courts are 'usurping' the democratic process. Without overheated rhetoric or legal jargon, Gerstmann makes the case for same-sex marriage as a constitutional guarantee.

Using Colorado's initiative with Amendment 2 as its focus, this text seeks to untangle the complex standards and subtle rhetoric the Supreme Court uses to apply the equal protection clause. It reveals how these standards are used to favour certain groups over others.
