Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the most respected and authoritative college textbook available on human sexuality. Written in a direct, non-judgmental manner, this edition of OUR SEXUALITY has been thoroughly and carefully updated to reflect the most current research findings. It is the first college text to bring cutting-edge and in-depth emphasis on the impact of politics on sexuality. Crooks and Baur keep you interested with the most exciting, emerging research and coverage, and focus on strengthening healthy communication among partners. The authors also have revised their overall coverage on maintaining a responsible and healthy sexual relationship, with greater attention to diversity and inclusiveness.

Book News Annotation:

This introductory textbook examines the psycho-social, cultural, and biological components of human sexuality. Topics include (for example) gender issues, sexual response, contraception, and atypical sexual behavior. The importance of healthy communication between partners is emphasized throughout. New "Sex and Politics" features have been added for the tenth edition. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

The integration of psychological, social, and biological components of human sexuality in this text is facilitated by the blending of the authors' academic and professional backgrounds. Robert Crooks has a Ph.D. in psychology, and his graduate training stressed clinical and physiological psychology. In addition, he has considerable background in sociology, which served as his minor throughout his graduate training. His involvement with teaching human sexuality classes at the university and college level spans two decades.Karla Baur a obtenu une ma?trise en travail social. Elle a suivi avec Robert Crooks une formation clinique et a participe recemment a la mise en ?uvre d'un programme d'education et d'intervention HIV/SIDA au Kenya.
