The Gender/Sexuality Reader is a sophisticated survey of the best recent work in anthropology on the issues of gender and sexuality. The essays are diverse and engaging: colonial rule in Indonesia, the sexological legacy of scientific racism in Europe, eugenics in Singapore, the political-economic context of motherhood in Brazil. Developing the insights of social constructionism this reader shows how gender, sexuality, and power are historically connected and practically intertwined.
