Social Perspectives in Lesbian and Gay Studies: A Reader

Peter M. Nardi, Beth E. Schneider
Routledge, 13. ruj 2013. - Broj stranica: 640
This comprehensive reader brings a social science perspective to an area hitherto dominated by the humanities. Through it, students will be able to follow the story of how sociology has come to engage with gay and lesbian issues from the 1950s to the present, from the earliest research on the underground worlds of gay men to the emergence of queer theory in the 1990s.
Bringing together classic readings and the best work of younger scholars from all parts of the English-speaking world, this reader will be an invaluable resource for courses at undergraduate and graduate level in all areas of the sociology of sexuality and gender. Separate sections cover:
* theoretical foundations
* identity and community making
* institutions and social change
* challenges for the future.
Each section begins with an introduction giving readers a brief guide to the readings in that section, contextualises them and relates them to one another and the book ends with an afterword by Ken Plummer summing up the present state of play and looking forward to the future.

If you had to choose just one source that would give you an understanding of the work in the social sciences on gay life, this would be the best anthology. Reader is not on queer studies. Pročitajte cijelu recenziju
