Abstract

In this edited volume, eight essays examine the American military's policy concerning homosexuality. Reflecting both liberal and conservative perspectives, the book offers an historical review of the role of gays and lesbians in the armed forces, and considers issues like privacy, unit cohesion, the hidden costs of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, and prospects for the future. One chapter is devoted to recounting the experiences of openly gay soldiers, and another considers the examples of foreign militaries. [Goodreads]
