Handbook of the New Sexuality Studies
Breaking new ground, both substantively and stylistically, the
 Handbook of the NewSexuality Studies
offers students, academics, and researchers an accessible, engagingintroduction and overview of this emerging field. The central premise of the volume is toexplore the social character 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 novel approach the field of sexuality is thereforeconsidered, for the first time, in multicultural, global, and comparative terms and from atruly social perspective.This important volume has been built around a collection of newly commissioned articles, essays and interviews with leading scholars, consisting of:
over 50 short and original essays on the key topics and themes in sexuality studies;
interviews with twelve leading scholars in the field which convey some of the mostinnovative work being done.Each contribution is original and conveys the latest thinking and research in writing thatis clear and that uses examples to illustrate key points.The
 Handbook of the New Sexuality Studies
will be an invaluable resource to all thosewith an interest in sexuality studies.
