UNDERSTANDING HUMAN SEXUALITY has always been a leader in the field, from the first edition in 1979 through the fifth edition in 1994. It is the "classic" that new books try to beat. It combines a readable, engaging style that appeals to students from diverse backgrounds, with exceptionally careful scholarship. Most human sexuality courses, especially those in psychology and sociology departments, are multidisciplinary, drawing on biological, psychological and sociological materials, as well as information about sexual health. This text is broad-based and comprehensive to meet this need. The book has always given solid coverage to the social sciences. Its multidisciplinary character has been strengthened with the additon of John DeLamater, a social psychologist and Professor of Sociology, as a co-author.
