An Educated Layperson's Evaluation of SEXUAL HEALTH.
This series of volumes was written by a wide range of experts primarily for medical professionals, educators and researchers. It provides a good introduction to the state of the art in human sexuality research and policy around the world. The chapters are somewhat variable in style, but all are remarkably free of unnecessary jargon. This makes these volumes accessible to the general public. This set of books would be useful additions to any family health library. The books contain very few illustrations, and no photos, if this is a concern for some parents. SEXUAL HEALTH follows the evolution of the sociology of human sexuality from primarily a control and moral issue to primarily a health and human rights issue. Personally, I could have used more statistics, but I suspect the editors deliberately kept statistical data to a minimum to maintain good readibility. The books do not promote particular fads or products or medical treatments, so are not a thinly veiled attempt to get consumers to spend their money. News reporters and writers, as well as government policy makers, might particularly benefit from having these books on their office shelves.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
