Sex, Gender, and Sexuality

The New Basics

Second Edition

Abby L. Ferber, Kimberly Holcomb, and Tre Wentling

Pushing the boundaries of traditional sex, gender, and sexuality theories, this edited volume brings together classic and cutting-edge works that will engage and challenge students. Now in its second edition, Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics includes several new articles on such subjects as the "nature" of same-sex practices and desires transnationally and globally; the social institution of heterosexuality; constructions of body size, disability, individual and community membership/s; and how the complicities of sexual terminology intersect with personal experiences of sex, gender, and sexuality. Twelve new articles examine diverse topics including disability, abortion, sports, historical immigration practices, contemporary heterosexual marriage promotions, queer transnational tourism, transnational feminism, and the global sex trade. The second edition continues to provide engaging discussion questions and also highlights an updated, comprehensive list of key terms.
