Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second edition of this highly praised human sexuality text continues to be a product of author Janell Carroll's partnership with her students to answer the questions and concerns that they have about themselves and their sexuality with scientific fact, sensitivity, humor and unmatched candor. Janell Carroll clearly conveys foundational biological and health issues, extensively cites both current and classic research, and addresses all material in a fresh and fun way; her book helps teach students what they need, and want, to know about sexuality. Her focus takes into account the social, religious, ethnic, racial, and cultural contexts of today's students. Dr. Carroll has used feedback from the first edition to add even further value to this popular title-streamlining student pedagogy and providing dynamic learning opportunities through Active Summaries at the end of chapters, a new online student tutorial, new video components, and content for Classroom Response Systems. This continues to be the text most representative of today's students, incorporating new sexual position art, a new pronunciation guide, and (for instructors) a new cross-cultural Slang Guide.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook introduces undergraduates to the study of human sexuality in all its diversity. Using a student-centered approach, Carroll (U. of Hartford) addresses young people's most-asked questions and includes their voices in every chapter. Sample topics include gender development, adolescent sexuality, contraception, and pornography. The second edition features hundreds of new research citations and an increased multi-cultural focus. Oversize: 9x10.75".
