About the Author

Kerry H. Robinson is an Associate Professor in the School of Education and a member of the Centre for Educational Research at the University of Western Sydney, Australia.


"An important book with a compelling message. It provides an enlightening view of children's perspectives of their sexuality and the influences on its development. It should give pause to educators, politicians, parents, and society-at-large who attempt to govern and regulate subjects without adequate input from, or understanding of, the subjects' perspectives and the effects of their environments." - K. Keefe, Indiana University, Bloomington, USA

"The book is heavily grounded in sociological and psychological theory, empirical research in the social sciences, and Robinson's own professional and personal experiences. [...] An increase in availability of research and literature like Robinson's will lead to more discussion in the public sphere and hopefully, eventually, result in changes in the way childhood is viewed and regulated." - Jessica R. Peterson, Journal of Youth Adolescence
