Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 219–221. Reviews the book, Homosexuality: Discrimination, Criminology, and the Law edited by Wayne R. Dynes and Stephen Donaldson (1992). The intent of this anthology is commendable, to compile in one series the most important articles on homosexuality from diverse disciplines. The editors note in their introduction that many articles on homosexuality are published in diverse or obscure sources, which reduces availability of materials to scholars. Their anthology attempts to bring together in one set seminal articles from anthropology, biology, arts, law, literature, mental health, Asian studies, religion, sociology, medicine, philosophy, political science, criminology, and history. If the contributors to this book, continue in their endeavors, it is clear that future legal challenges on behalf of lesbian and gay citizens will be sophisticated, articulate, and diverse and that there is hope.
