From the Publisher
. . . readers of Self-Made Men will gain a thorough understanding of many of the theoretical challenges surrounding transsexual identity, embodiment, and politics.
Henry Rubin has written a fascinating, vivid, and intellectually important book. This is the best contribution in years to the understanding of 'transsexuals' and gender transitions. Rubin combines contemporary life-history interviews, historical documents, and several schools of theory to create a strikingly original interpretation of the nature and history of transgender identities. Written with clarity and passion, this is a book that should be read (and will be enjoyed) by everyone who wants to understand contemporary gender issues.
--R. W. Connell
