Description

Equality is often trampled on by those who believe they are, in varying ways, superior. However, identifying how government systems can protect against discrimination can assist future generations in combating the harsh realities of inequality.

Social Jurisprudence in the Changing of Social Norms: Emerging Research and Opportunities delivers a collection of resources dedicated to identifying sexual orientation as a protected legal class like race, color, gender, and religion using innovative research methods and the federalist responses to the LGBT movement. While highlighting topics including judicial review, LGBT politics, and social change framework, this book is ideally designed for policymakers, politicians, academicians, researchers, and students seeking current research on the analysis of legal cases that provide evidence of LGBT citizen marginalization.
