From the Publisher"This book is offered as a guide to be used by transsexuals, their families, and the mental health professionals who work with these people. Such a book is indeed badly needed. There are few tasks more difficult than having to deal every day with the issues raised by feeling that one in trapped in the wrong body—forced to live a lie. This book has much to offer….[t]his volume provides a very valuable, brief, readable guide to the complex subject of transsexuality. It would be valuable for use by transsexuals and their families; for therapists who work with transsexuals; and as an ancillary text for graduate classes in transsexuality."
"The Praeger Handbook of Transsexuality takes us through the different stages of a gender transition process that a small number of people go through every year in order to match gender with mindset. It is the kind of book that helps one start thinking about an issue—in this case 'gender'—in a different, more complex way….[A] perfect book for getting a basic introduction to the varied dimensions of gender transition processes, for understanding the basic implications of transsexuality, intersex conditions, the basis of gender identity atypically and its consequences. It is a handbook for anyone whose work involves the understanding of people….It will inevitably broaden the mind and make you more well informed…."
