50 WAYS TO SUPPORT LESBIANS & GAY EQUALITY (P)

$14.95
Written by straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people and those that care about them, 50 Ways to Support Gay and Lesbian Equality is a compendium of informative, joyful, practical and poignant essays by well-known experts and leaders, each promoting understanding while suggested simple actions. Issues include:

• Defining terminology (What a tranny? What’s gay baiting?)
• Exploring family issues ("Should I come out to my parents on Thanksgiving?" "How can I support a lesbian couple who want to have children?")
• How to support gay rights around the world

A timely and much-needed guide, 50 Ways demonstrates positive ways for both straight and gay people to respond to everyday discrimination and misunderstandings, bringing the world closer to the true meaning of equality.

A powerful call-to-action series, "Action Guides," was launched with the New York Times bestselling MoveOn’s 50 Ways to Love Your Country, followed by NCWO’s 50 Ways to Improve Women’s Lives. The third book in the series—50 Ways to Support Lesbians and Gays—features 50 personal, inspiring essays with "Action Guide" sidebars collected by bestselling Meredith Maran and series editor Angela Watrous.

Signposts:New Directions in Southern Legal History

$26.95

In Signposts, Sally E. Hadden and Patricia Hagler Minter have assembled seventeen essays, by both established and rising scholars, that showcase new directions in southern legal history across a wide range of topics, time periods, and locales. The essays will inspire today's scholars to dig even more deeply into the southern legal heritage, in much the same way that David Bodenhamer and James Ely's seminal 1984 work, Ambivalent Legacy, inspired an earlier generation to take up the study of southern legal history.

Contributors to Signposts explore a wide range of subjects related to southern constitutional and legal thought, including real and personal property, civil rights, higher education, gender, secession, reapportionment, prohibition, lynching, legal institutions such as the grand jury, and conflicts between bench and bar. A number of the essayists are concerned with transatlantic connections to southern law and with marginalized groups such as women and native peoples. Taken together, the essays in Signposts show us that understanding how law changes over time is essential to understanding the history of the South.
