About this book


This fascinating and wide-ranging analysis of gender and sexualities brings together the disparate literatures on demography, love and marriage, the body, homosexuality, lesbianism, and the regulation of sexuality. It makes available to both undergraduates and professionals these complex literatures in an accessible and readable form, and in the process changes our understanding of the nature of the origins and development of modern sexual roles and gender relations.
