Sex/Gender: Biology in a Social World by Anne Fausto-Sterling
Sex/Gender presents a relatively new way to think about how biological difference can be produced over time in response to different environmental and social experiences. This book gives a clearly written explanation of the biological and cultural underpinnings of gender. Anne Fausto-Sterling provides an introduction to the biochemistry, neurobiology, and social construction of gender with expertise and humor in a style accessible to a wide variety of readers.
In addition to the basics, Sex/Gender ponders the moral, ethical, social and political side to this inescapable subject.
