Overview

Over the past twenty years, transgender studies has emerged as a vibrant field of interdisciplinary scholarship. In 2006, Routledge's The Transgender Studies Reader brought together the first definitive collection of the field. Since its publication, the field has seen an explosion of new work that has expanded the boundaries of inquiry in many directions. The Transgender Studies
Reader 2
gathers these disparate strands of scholarship, and collects them into a format that makes sense for teaching and research.

Complementing the first volume, rather than competing with it, The Transgender Studies Reader 2 consists of fifty articles, with a general introduction by the editors, explanatory head notes for each essay, and bibliographical suggestions for further research. Unlike the first volume, which was historically based, tracing the lineage of the field, this volume focuses on recent work and emerging trends. To keep pace with this rapidly changing area, the second reader has a companion website, with images, links to blogs, video, and other material to help supplement the book.

Library Journal
★ 06/01/2016
The first volume is a canonical collection of English-language essays in transgender studies, spanning from Krafft-Ebing to Jack Halberstam. The equally ambitious second volume complements the first, demonstrating emerging trends in the field. Savvy acquisitions librarians should have little difficulty finding them at more affordable prices.
