Same-sex marriage has become one of the most volatile issues in American politics. But if most young people support gay marriage, and if there are clear indicators that a substantial majority of the population will soon favor it, why has the outcry against it been so strong? There author offers an account of modern litigation over same-sex marriage. After looking at the treatment of gays in the decades after WWII and the birth of the modern gay rights movement with the Stonewall Riots in 1969, the author describes the key legal cases involving gay marriage and the dramatic political backlashes they ignited. He traces the same pattern - court victory followed by dramatic backlash - through cases in Vermont, California, and Iowa, taking the story right up to the present.
