This path-breaking study of gender and sexuality is the first to go beyond the nature/nurture debate to offer an alternate framework for considering questions of sex and sexuality.

Village Voice

Filled with an enormous amount of fresh ideas and evidence, Fausto-Sterling's latest book, Sexing the Body, is bound to become a high-traffic feminist classic. Pointing her cannons both at gender theorists who want nothing to do with science and at biologists who still believe in scientific objectivity, she examines, one by one, the histories of scientific ideas about hormones, the "gay brain," and intersexuality.
