This bibliography pulls together a scattered literature of popular periodical articles, monographs, and sources from the legal press to create a picture of the treatment of the homosexual in both contemporary and past societies. Subject coverage has been limited to eight areas of society in which homophobic attitudes have been frequently expressed: the military, child custody, adoption and foster care, religion, censorship, employment, and police-community relations. This arrangement facilitates access to information on the desired topics. Sources cited in this work are those which are most accessible. Annotations expand the scope of entries and are cross-referenced. Both legal and alternative press sources are included for greater scope. A pioneering work, The Homosexual and Society opens up a subfield of research in the social sciences that has been neglected and merits wider consideration. This bibliography is suitable for college and research libraries, state historical associations, public libraries of all sizes, law libraries and specialized research facilities in the social sciences.
