Eskridge, W. (1996). The Case for Same-Sex Marriage: From Sexual Liberty to Civilized Commitment. Free Press, NY. This book addresses the political controversy of whether to allow or forbid same sex marriages throughout the United States. This is a reputable source and a professional writing. The author states the propositions for both arguments. This is a very detailed book due to a thorough review of the laws that have been passed previously involving gay marriage in other states. The book is peer reviewed and the creditability of the author is valid. Eskridge supports his argument by reiterating the Fourteenth Amendment, freedom of choice in personal matters of marriage and family life (Eskridge, 1996. p.87).
