A very in depth analysis of gender and its relation to sexuality and subjectivity. The book is a must for any student that is required to understand issues of gender and grasp main theories that explore sexuality and gender
Gender and sexuality is written in a clear, concise fashion that helps readers to understand the fundamental conceptions relating to gender, sex, sexuality and masculinity. The intersections of these variables are conveyed in a way that allows the reader to clearly understand how they function collectively.
This publication is very interesting; however theoretically it is too advanced for the level I teach.
This is a challenging text that is a pertinent recommendation in order to push students' thinking further.
Very useful book for my course on Social Theory and Human Sexuality. I appreciate how Beasley provides a framework for analyzing theories related to feminism, sexuality, and masculinities.
Personally I'd aim this at 3rd year students and those willing to read outside of the lectures and explore views of others concerning human sexuality.
The book itself covers a wide range of topics in a fair and concise manner. Highly recommended text for students reading into sexuality, especially from the view points of psychology and the social sciences.
Gender and Sexuality offers a wide ranging account of theories relating to the study of gender and sexuality. I would recommend it as a perfect starting point for those studing issues to go with sex, gender, masculinity, and femininity,
A useful text which covers the key themes and debates relating to gender and sexuality, a very useful resource for students at all levels
This text provides a good wide overview of key perspectives across gender and sexuality studies. I find it useful to have a text that includes femisnisms, masculinity studies, and sexuality studies all in one place, whilst still remaining managable and accessible. This text has achieved that.
A good introductory text into contemporary critical thought on gender, sexuality and the surrounding debates.
The book provides a very clear overview of gender and sexuality theories, presents complex ideas in a simple and accessible way. I recommend this book for students of my women's rights course. Taking into account the nature of the course, this book cannot in itself constitute a core reading but represents a valuable supplement to other readings.
Excellent coverage of key theoretical debates, much of which is accessible to the novice student of gender and sexuality. I would have welcomed more on intersections with class, though Beasley does acknowledge the relative lack of discussion. For the students here, the overviews are likely to be the most read sections.
This is an excellent text for post graduate students who have a good and fairly extensive knowledge of gender and sexuality studies. It will be useful to have a copy in the library to deepen their understanding.
A much needed and extensive overview of the relevant theories dealing with sexuality in modern society and indeed as a social construct. Excellent text.
This is a very informative text which will be essential reading for AOP courses.
An excellent text.
Very good reader for post graduate students. Too advanced for undergraduates.
Still worth a read and I shall definitely propose that the library gets a copy.
I have recommended this as an additional text for the course. It is a useful introduction to the various topics raised in the field. This is especially useful when it comes to theorists such as Butler, where the primary texts are too dense for many first-year students at first glance. Priming them with the overviews in this volume is a useful way of allowing the students to grasp the central concepts and debates before engaging with the primary materials, thus enhancing their understanding.
A complex text of a complex subject that anyone attempting to conduct indepth research/ learning into the subjects of genderr and sexuality will find invaluable. May require earlier reading prior to this text from an undergraduate/ inexperienced student, but well worth persisting with
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
