9780415881463: Sex/Gender: Biology in a Social World (The Routledge Series Integrating Science and Culture)

Sex/Gender presents a relatively new way to think about how biological difference can be produced over time in response to different environmental and social experiences.

This book gives a clearly written explanation of the biological and cultural underpinnings of gender. Anne Fausto-Sterling provides an introduction to the biochemistry, neurobiology, and social construction of gender with expertise and humor in a style accessible to a wide variety of readers. In addition to the basics, Sex/Gender ponders the moral, ethical, social and political side to this inescapable subject.

An interview with the author! WOMR - The Lowdown with Ira Wood - Sex an Gender Identity with Anne Fausto-Sterling: http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/womr/.jukebox?action=viewMedia&mediaId=1025429

Her latest research analyzes the emergence of behavioral differences between the sexes in early childhood. She is the author of two earlier books: Myths of Gender: Biological Theories about Women and Men (Basic, 1993) and Sexing the Body: gender politics and the construction of sexuality (Basic, 2000).
