With heterosexuality currently being examined more rigorously than ever before, this accessible and engaging book charts the development of feminist and sociological theorizing on sexuality and the emergence of a radical critique of heterosexuality. Stevi Jackson reviews a range of important theoretical and substantive issues, and she demonstrates an important shift in feminist thinking from an emphasis on male dominance within heterosexual relations to a critical perspective on heterosexuality itself. Her book will be relevant to scholars and students in the fields of women's studies, lesbian and gay studies and the sociology of sexuality.

Industry Reviews

`A pleasure to read.....Her effort to tease apart the constituent elements of heterosexuality as a self-identified straight feminist sociologist make for an important contribution. If you or your students are among the legions currently enraptured by postmodern language, I strongly recommend this book to help clear your mind' -Sexualities
