FTM: Female-to-Male Transsexuals in Society Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This is the most comprehensive, professional book to date on FTM transsexualism and the many aspects of their life journeys. For its volume, this book is clearly understandable and reads without excessive use of scientific and academic rhetoric, thus making the book available to a broad audience. It is nonjudgmental, nonsensational, and provocative in its honesty, interpretation, and challenge to the future of societal opinion regarding FTM gender identity." --Journal of Sex Research

"Holly Devor's exploration of the life experiences and transformations of female-to-male transsexuals richly describes a heretofore neglected topic. Her compelling description provides readers with insights that both contrast with and complement the existing literature on male-to-female transsexuals and other transgendered individuals." --Contemporary Sociology

"... a landmark in the documentation of the personal lives of transsexual men." --The Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality

"The book alternates specialized academic analysis with the individual studies, and should be of interest to both professionals who work with transsexuals and scholars interested in gender theory." --Choice

"Writing with an intelligent and accessible style, Dr. Devor balances exposition, analysis, and excerpts from her subjects' interviews to present a coherent picture of what social life is like for FTMs as they find their identity and learn about themselves."
