New Sexual Agendas tackles the urgent practical and theoretical challenges in the area of gender and sexuality. Leading theorists, activists and clinicians, including Bob Connell, Adam Sinfield, Leonore Tiefer and Jeffrey Weeks, encourage a creative exchange of knowledge across different research and applied perspectives. This volume highlights the intensity of the feelings generated by the changes occurring in sexual and gender relations, while signalling the possibilities for new strategies encompassing diversity and choice. As conservatives call for a 'return to basics' and their opponents promote policies for increasing the confidence of all people to pursue the differing comforts and pleasures of the body, free from intimidation and threat, we can learn more about how sex functions in our culture from this volume.
