This anthology on sexuality addresses such key questions as: How are sexualities socially constructed? Why are sexualities more than just natural "urges"? and How are sexualities personal, social, and political? Using multiple disciplines, international populations, and theories to explore sexualities, it opens with classical and contemporary theories, and then explores the ways in which we learn about sexual activities and develop sexual identities. Sexualities: Identities, Behaviors, and Society has a strong sociological approach, but also considers other important perspectives (psychology, biology, history). It is rigorous, yet accessible and engaging, covering classical and contemporary arguments and perspectives. For this second edition, the author and contributors have thoroughly revised the manuscript to include a wide variety of additional topical coverage, added critical thinking and discussing quesitons to each article, and created a glossary of key terms.
