Sullivan, A. And Landau, J. "Same-Sex Marriage: Pro and Con." New York. Random House: 1997. Accessed 29 March 2012.
Conservative gay commentator Sullivan, a former New York Republic editor, has compiled two thousand years of argument about the virtually normality in an anthology of historic inclusiveness and evenhandedness. The debate is presented to the reader in several sections, political or religious, and then presents very impressive and convincing arguments pro and con same sex marriage.
I find it very informative because it does not only introduce the reader to the house floor defense of marriage act debate, but also summarizes the impact of court cases like the historic Hawaiian Supreme Court case which would have legalized gay marriage in Hawaii if not for an amendment to the Hawaiian Constitution passed by voters in November 1998 and brings together views from the conservative and liberal side of the political spectrum.
