What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"A hugely valuable resource for teachers, students and researchers: nuanced, extensively referenced, and written with admirable clarity. This 2nd, thoroughly updated edition, takes sexuality fully on board together with a range of global research contexts. An intellectual pleasure."
Jane Sunderland, Lancaster University, UK

“This is what a handbook should be: authoritative, inclusive, and accessible… this updated version includes summaries of some of the most important debates and concepts of recent years without becoming bogged down in them. I will definitely use this handbook as my first reference of choice when students and colleagues ask me where to start in this particular field.”
Scott Kiesling, University of Pittsburgh
