Andrew Koppelman's book presents the legal and moral case for gay equality. He contends that various arguments, such as privacy and sex discrimination, justify the equal treatment of gay men and lesbians. By analogizing the struggle for equality to the debate surrounding same-sex marriage, Koppelman suggests that although change will come, the courts are presently too far ahead of public opinion to recognize same-sex marriage. This Book Review examines how law and economics removes the debate to a pragmatic theater, compelling recognition of same-sex marriage.
