Overview

With heterosexuality currently being examined more rigorously than ever before, this accessible and engaging book charts the development of feminist and sociological theorizing on sexuality and the emergence of a radical critique of heterosexuality.

Her book will be relevant to scholars and students in the fields of women's studies, lesbian and gay studies and the sociology of sexuality.
