As society shapes the expression of sexual desire through cultural images and social institutions, sociologists examine how sexual behavior shapes, and is shaped by, social norms. Several of the most eminent and readable social theorists drive this important new line of sociological thought. Gathered here are thirty-two of the best essays on the sociology of sex and gender. The essays included here reflect differences in race, gender, and class and demonstrate how different social groups experience different sets of social norms. Topics include gender and sex theory, identity, childhood and adolescent sexuality, the objectification of women, sexuality and religion, leisure and recreation, politics and social change, and the possible future of sexual relationships. These essays also explore contemporary issues that remain relevant to students and to current theoretical debates. Editorial introductions give further direction and insight, making this an ideal introduction to sex and gender.

Review:

"A superb collection! This book collects some of the most important works on gender and sexuality by contemporary social scientists. It is, instantly, the foundational anthology in the field." Michael Kimmel, State University of New York at Stony Brook

"Sexuality and Gender is a terrific volume. Cutting-edge articles by the most innovative scholars working in this area today address just about everything one might want to know from a social science perspective on sexuality. This will be an excellent collection for classroom use, as well as a great read for anyone interested in sexuality and gender." Judith A. Howard, University of Washington

"Finally, a reader on the sociology of sexualities. Basic and sophisticated, accessible and complex, this collection of both classics and newer work is bound to be a resource for students and scholars alike. Williams and Stein have captured the broad reach of the sociological imagination in sexuality studies." Janice Irvine, University of Massachusetts at Amherst

"One of the best students readers currently available ... Almost everyone who teaches in this field will find something here that stimulates their interest further and challenges them to approach familiar themes from new angles" Sexualities
