Product Description

Review

"the book is closer to a real conversation than many other anthologies that make such a claim.... But I came to think that the extreme brevity might be useful if it generates further discussion. It is not a bad thing to go away hungry for more. Shanley rehearses sharply and concisely the view of marriage that came to the United States from British tradition....Meanwhile this small book offers to activists and nonactivists a fine introduction, and provocation, to serious debate."--Perspectives on Politics

"Coming from diverse perspectives, these provocative essays probe beneath the surface of the marriage debates to ask redical questions about marriage itelf-not only who should marry, but whay marriage should be priveleged above other relationships. Just Marriage will help those interested in reforming marriage think more deeply about the public's stake in marriage and marriage's place in society."-Dorothy Roberts, author of Shattered Bonds: The Color of Child Welfare

"Shanley's argument strives for equity and the full grantof citizenship for gay and lesbian people seeking to enter a civil marriage commitment while doing justice to the qualms that many different kinds of people have about marriage. Whatever one thinks of its merits, the debate it sparks presents a fresh and supportive alternative to the public conversation on same-sex marriage."-Urvashi Vaid, former executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

"It is difficult for disagreements about the public meaning of marriage to be reasonable today. Mary Shanley sets the tone with strong views reasonably stated, and her interlocutors follow her example. This is an articulate and timely conversation!"--Iris Marion Young, author of Inclusion and Democracy
