From the cover: With heterosexuality currently being examined more rigorously than ever before, this accessible and engaging book charts the development of feminist and sociological theorizing on sexuality, as well as the emergence of a radical critique of heterosexuality.
Stevi Jackson has reviewed a range of important theoretical and substantive issues in this book, including: love and romance, the politics of gay rights, psychoanalysis, sex education, the social construction of gender and sexuality, and rape. Out of her discussion of these issues emerges a clear understanding of the important shift that has taken place in feminist thinking away from an emphasis on male dominance within heterosexual relations and towards a critical perspective on heterosexuality itself.
Heterosexuality in Question is vital reading to those interested in the study of sexuality, as well as those concerned with the progress of recent debates on heterosexuality. It is relevant to scholars and students alike in the fields of womens studies, the sociology of sexuality, and lesbian and gay studies.
