Principles of Developmental Sexology is a summation of Money's life's work, much of it devoted to pediatric sexology, both normal and abnormal. This book marks the foundation of a new branch of scholarship and science, the developmental sexology of childhood and adolescence, from prenatal life onward. Uniquely thorough and comprehensive in its use of data, Principles of Developmental Sexology maintains its disinterestedness, and avoids both the currently popular theories of social constructionism and the so-called medical models of sexuality.
