    DescriptionShould the Boy Scouts of America and other noncommercial associations have a right to discriminate when selecting their members? Does the state have a legitimate interest in regulating the membership practices of private associations? These questions - raised by Boy Scouts of America v. Dale, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the Scouts had a right to expel gay members - are at the core of this provocative book, an in-depth exploration of the tension between freedom of association and antidiscrimination law. The book demonstrates that the 'right' to discriminate has a long and unpleasant history. Andrew Koppelman and Tobias Wolff bring together legal history, constitutional theory, and political philosophy to analyze how the law ought to deal with discriminatory private organizations.

    Review quote
    "Andrew Koppelman and Tobias Wolff demolish the reasoning behind the Supreme Court decision holding that the Boy Scouts have a constitutional right to discriminate against gays--and also give us an incisive, subtle analysis of freedom of association."--David A. Strauss, Gerald Ratner Distinguished Service Professor of Law, The University of Chicago Law School --David A. Strauss
