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.

Review:

"Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics will make an important and timely contribution to our collective understanding of the interconnectedness of sex, gender, and sexuality. The entries included in the volume represent classic and cutting-edge articles, diverse theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of sex/gender/sexuality, and various voices across diverse social locations. The New Basics is a much-needed text for researchers and/or teachers in the area." --Cynthia Pelak, University of Memphis

"This text is groundbreaking in bringing together sexuality and gender as interconnected fields of social inquiry." --Betsy Erbaugh, University of New Mexico

"What a welcome - and well-titled - resource! Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics is just that - new, fresh, exciting, intersectional, and, at the same time, absolutely foundational to an adequate understanding of sex, gender, and sexuality. Immediately indispensable!" --Michael Kimmel, Stony Brook University

"For the first time, here is an anthology that consistently goes beyond the standard binaries of sex, gender, and sexuality. This reader presents the basics, and at the same time, queries the conventional categories. By expanding the 'opposites' of sex, gender, and sexuality and showing their intersections with each other and with social class and racial ethnic statuses, Ferber, Holcomb, and Wentling take the basics into the twenty-first century in theory, research, and policy. Superb!" --Judith Lorber, Graduate School and Brooklyn College, CUNY, author of "Breaking the Bowls: Degendering and Feminist Change"

"Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics will make an important and timely contribution to our collective understanding of the interconnectedness of sex, gender, and sexuality. The entries included in the volume represent classic and cutting-edge articles, diverse theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of sex/gender/sexuality, and various voices across diverse social locations. This is a much-needed text for researchers and/or teachers in the area." --Cynthia Pelak, University of Memphis
