Understanding Human Sexuality

Understanding Human Sexuality Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This trusted text examines the biological, psychological, and social science of human sexuality, provides practical information needed for everyday living, and familiarizes students with research methods used in sexuality. The author team features a unique combination of a psychologist and a sociologist, which gives this text a distinct interdisciplinary perspective.

The thoroughly revised eleventh edition of Hyde, Understanding Human Sexuality, has updated coverage on modern topics such as ethnic groups and sexuality, media influences, new contraceptives, sexual orientation, and gay marriage and civil unions. Hyde comes with access to SexSource Online, an online resource of quality video clips to accompany course material.
