Breaking new ground, both substantively and stylistically, Introducing the New Sexuality Studies,Second Edition offers students and academics an engaging, thought-provoking introduction and overview of the social study of sexualities. Its central premise is to explore the social construction of sexuality, the role of social differences such as race or nationality in creating sexual variation, and the ways sex is entangled in relations of power and inequality. Through this approach the field of sexuality is considered in multicultural, global, and comparative terms, and from a truly social perspective.

The second edition of this definitive textbook consists of over seventy-five short, original essays on the key topics and themes in sexuality studies. It also includes interviews with fourteen leading scholars in the field, which convey some of the most innovative work currently being undertaken. Each contribution is original, presenting the latest thinking and research in clear and accessible terms, using engaging examples to illustrate key points.

This topical and timely volume will be an invaluable resource to all those with an interest in sexuality studies, gender studies andLGBTQ studies.
