How a small, seemingly marginalized group becomes a political force
“The Remarkable Rise of Transgender Rights not only is the first comprehensive treatment of the success of the trans rights movement, but also serves as a blue print for any other ‘essentially contested rights’ movement. If I may make a bold prediction, this will become the model by which other rights treatment books are structured and judged.”
—Charles Anthony Smith, University of California, Irvine
“The authors have done an excellent job in tackling a complicated and compelling set of issues with humanity, eloquence, and rigor. This book will be of interest to faculty, to students, and to members of the larger LGBTQ community, including activists. Highly recommended!”
—Craig Rimmerman, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
“How did a minority group within a minority group become recognized in a majoritarian political system? The Remarkable Rise of Transgender Rights details the complex path of this stunning development in the LGBT movement and U.S. politics over the past thirty years. This is an important book that should be read widely.”
—Susan Burgess, Ohio University
