Summary

Interest in gender and sexual identity has soared in recent years, sparking lively discussions both inside and outside of the classroom. Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics brings together many of the vibrant voices in this ongoing dialogue, constructing a compelling new model for making sense of gender and sexuality. As it bridges the study of these topics, this dynamic anthology provides a thorough examination of their various interconnections and intersections. Working from an accessible, incisive framework, editors Abby L. Ferber, Kimberly Holcomb, and Tre Wentling raise many provocative questions, including * How does our understanding of the relationships between sex, gender, and sexuality vary across time and culture? * What are the relationships between transgender, transsexual, and queer? * How do class and race shape the experiences and expressions of gender and sexuality? To capture the broad spectrum of its subject, Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics integrates a variety of selections, including first-person accounts and narratives, poems, theoretical analyses, and critiques of existing research. In addition, the editors have created a unique glossary, which provides current definitions of both basic and cutting-edge terms. An invaluable resource for both students and instructors in this constantly evolving field, this collection of key concepts familiarizes readers with the latest developments in research and vocabulary. Ideal for courses in sociology and women's studies, Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics introduces students to the exciting new research that will shape the ways in which we understand sex, gender, and sexuality--as well as the complex and shifting relationships among these categories.
