"A More Perfect Union" is specifically addressed to heterosexual readers. "Why Straight Americans Must Stand Up for Gay Rights" is the book's provocative subtitle, and it is more correctly described as a book about human rights than "gay rights," a term the author himself uses. "As an invisible minority, gay men and lesbians also need civil rights protections," argues Richard D.

Harcourt Brace Jovanovich would like to remind the world that Madonna does not hold the patent on sexual confessions. In "Incest," HBJ's latest installment of Anais Nin's diaries, Nin reveals that she was simultaneously sleeping with her psychoanalyst, her cousin Edwardo, her husband and her father. The new volume also describes her relationship with Henry Miller and his wife, June--although this old news was chronicled earlier in Nin's best-selling "Henry & June."

Regarding Rev. Randy Jordan's "White Youths Need to Learn the Contributions Made by Other Races" (Platform, July 29): Please, before we get into a futile discussion of the influence on European civilization of alleged black men (Moors? Would they consider themselves black Africans?), let us consider this: Hate and hateful acts exist because people are confused about who they are and who God is. Racist youth and young people who enjoy evil of other sorts will not be restored to health by information.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court begins hearing arguments in two cases that could become landmarks of American legal history: challenges to Proposition 8, the 2008 voter initiative that outlawed gay marriage in California, and to the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman. The final decision won't be announced for months, but there's quite a few books that offer insight into the Supreme Court and the issues of same-sex marriage to tide you over until then.

Fritz Reiner (1888-1963), the Hungarian-born conductor who raised the Chicago Symphony to the heights during the last decade of his life with a method compounded equally of skill and intimidation, ranked with Arturo Toscanini and George Szell among the legendary tyrants of the podium. There is ample documentation of his blazing temper, his tiny beat (which, he claimed, forced the players to concentrate)--and his acutely sensitive ear for pitch and balance.
