Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sexuality, Health and Human Rights surveys the rapid changes taking place at the start of the twenty-first century in the social, cultural, political and economic domains and their impact on sexuality, health and human rights. The relationships between men, women and children are changing quickly, as are the traditional family structures. What were once viewed as private matters have become public, and the conflicts between these emerging movements have come into the open.

This new work presents a new framework for understanding this new world, set in the context of the major theoretical debates of the last few decades. It will be of interest to many professionals and social policy researches and is suitable for a wide range of multidisciplinary courses covering areas such as human sexuality, public health and social policy.
