Lerner et al. are joined by scholars, journalists, and researchers from around the world in compiling primary source documents on gender and sexuality, each accompanied by commentary, key facts, significance, date, type of source, introductory description, brief biography, and further resources, including web sites. Entries relate to perspectives on the topics, the women's rights movement, the gay rights movement, transgendereds and transsexuals, medicine and public health, school and work, the media, and obscenity, pornography, and sex crimes. Sample entries: "Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth, Sexual Politics by Kate Millet, the Redstockings Manifesto, lyrics from "I Am Woman," Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, George W. Bush's call for a ban on gay marriage, Nabokov's Lolita, and Anita Hill's opening statement during the 1991 Clarence Thomas sexual harassment hearings. Some entries are excerpts or facsimiles. The volume, intended for students and general readers, aims to bring about critical thinking about the subject. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
