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 third edition, Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: The New Basics features many vibrant voices in the ongoing
dialogue between gender and sexuality studies, constructing a compelling new model for making sense of gender and sexuality. It 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 that provides current definitions of both basic and leading-edge terms.
