Belkin, a scholar with more than a decade of hands-on experience in the repeal campaign, shares an insider’s perspective on the strategies that he and others used to foster the changes of mind — and heart – that led to Congressional repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The implications of Belkin’s tactics extend far beyond DADT, and the lessons that emerge could help progressives persuade the public about the merits of other big, liberal ideas, including the benefits of higher taxes and the dangers of an excessively strong military.
