Same-Sex Cultures and Sexualities: An Anthropological Reader by Jennifer Robertson
This book demonstrates the centrality of sex, gender, and sexuality to theories of human behaviors and practices. * Moves beyond other "lesbian and gay studies" readers by presenting a broader view of the significance of studying same--sex cultures and sexualities across cultures. * Offers readings from all four subfields of anthropology: cultural, biological, linguistic, and archaeological (along with historical and applied anthropology). * Includes discussion of biotechnology and bioethics, health and illness, language, ethnicity, identity, politics, post--colonialism, kinship, development, and policymaking.
