About the Author

Jason Pierceson is associate professor of political science at the University of Illinois, Springfield. He is the author of Same-Sex Marriage in the United States: The Road to the Supreme Court, (2013)


Sexual Minorities and Politics is masterfully done, providing the reader with a comprehensive, timely, and accessible account of LGBT political advocacy. Instructors will find the text versatile for a number of courses across (and within) disciplines. Pierceson also discusses a number of emerging issues that will make the text relevant beyond its initial publication, especially since these public policy questions are unlikely to be 'settled' for some time. Finally, the book's historical analysis should make it a staple despite the dynamic nature of LGBT issues; the how and why regarding LGBT political activism and group mobilization are illuminating for scholarship more generally. * Journal of Political Science *
Accessible and comprehensive, the book gives a great overview of all of the major developments in the United States, combining history, theory, and empirical evidence from the latest research... Widely adaptable for courses in political science or interdisciplinary sexuality/LGBT studies. -- Shawn Schulenberg, Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Political Science, Marshall University
Well written, comprehensive, and compelling. It is no exaggeration to say this is the best sexuality and politics textbook on the market. -- Charles Anthony "Tony" Smith, University of California, Irvine
