Michael Klarman wrote a new book entitled From the Closet to the Altar: Courts, Backlash, and the Struggle For Same-Sex Marriage. In his latest book, the Harvard Law School professor explores his idea that political backlash follows when courts when courts get ahead of public opinion as it is applied to same-sex marriage.
Within the book, he also details the history of the gay rights movement, how gay marriage became a legal issue and the costs and benefits of related litigation over the past 20 years. Please click here for a more in depth coverage of the book.
