Redeeming the Dream

The Case for Marriage Equality


The riveting insidestory of the Supreme Court’s landmark rulings on the Defense of Marriage Actand Proposition 8—by the two lawyers who argued the case

On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court of the United Statesissued a pair of landmark decisions, striking down the Defense of Marriage Actand eliminating California’s discriminatory Proposition 8, thereby reinstating thefreedom to marry for gays and lesbians in California.

Redeeming the Dream is the story of how David Boiesand Theodore B. Olson—who argued against each other all the way to the SupremeCourt in Bush v. Gore—joined forces after that titanic battle to forgethe unique legal argument that would carry the day. As allies, they tell thefascinating story of the five-year struggle to win the right for gays to marry,from Proposition 8’s adoption by voters in 2008 to its defeat before thehighest court in the land in Hollingsworth v. Perry in 2013.

Boies and Olson guide listeners through the legal framing ofthe case, making crystal clear the constitutional principles of due process andequal protection in support of marriage equality while explaining, withintricacy, the basic human truths they set out to prove when the duo putstate-sanctioned discrimination on trial.

Redeeming the Dream offers listeners anauthoritative, dramatic, and up-close account of the most important civilrights issue—fought and won—since Brown v. Board of Education and Lovingv. Virginia.
