The No-Nonsense Guide to Sexual Diversity (No Nonsense Guides) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is there a gay gene? Do we have the right to operate on hermaphrodite children? Gay, straight, bisexual, transsexualthe world is changing for sexual minorities. In some countries, the battle for sexual equality is bearing fruit in non-discriminatory legislation; in many others, gay people risk long prison sentences or even, as in Saudi Arabia or Iran, the death penalty. The No-Nonsense Guide to Sexual Diversity surveys the hidden history and geography of sexually unconventional behavior. And it explores the reasons behind the war being waged against sexual non-conformists by religious fundamentalists, be they Christian, Muslim or Hindu. This guide also contains an indispensable country-by-country survey of the laws affecting sexual minorities.

Synopsis:

A survey of the hidden history and geography of sexually unconventional behaviour, the battles won and ongoing sexual discrimination. This guide also contains a country to country survey of the laws affecting sexual minorities.

Synopsis:

Major issues facing the world today, complex as they are, are further obfuscated — often deliberately — by political and corporate jargon and media spin. This new Verso series of No-Nonsense Guides, published in conjunction with New Internationalist magazine, cuts through the confusion to present the facts and arguments concerning contemporary global issues as accessibly as possible.
