Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rather than serving to showcase the interests of individual contributors, this set offers uniform entries covering issues of sexuality by country. Francoeur, the editor of several sexological references, has clearly done his research: all of the entries closely follow a 14-point outline covering such topics as gender roles, religious and ethnic factors, autoerotic and interpersonal behaviors, contraception and abortion, sexually transmitted diseases, and other pertinent topics. An adequate topical index is included. The main failing of the volume is in the selection of countries to be covered, for which no rationale is given. English-speaking countries are overly represented; the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and South Africa are all here. Beyond that, the choice of countries seems arbitrary: why Bahrain but not Saudi Arabia? Why not France or Italy? Why Puerto Rico but not Haiti or Cuba? The spotty coverage is bound to disappoint many. Recommended only for large research libraries.Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, Wash.
