This thoughtful and accessible book provides a critical examination of the central debates attached to conceptualizing sexuality as a site of knowledge and politics. These are explored in chapters on the meaning of heterosexuality, sexual citizenship and the associated notions of sexual rights and obligations, queer theory and its relationship with feminisms, both `new' and `old'. Also included is discussion of responses to the HIV//AIDS epidemic and the implications for understandings of gender and sexuality.

Industry Reviews

`A bold and imaginative attempt to reorganize and restructure social theory's map of sexuality, Diane Richardson simultaneously contributes to a renewal of feminist theory and to the development of a new field - sexual citizenship. By approaching the question of modern sexuality through queer theory, citizenship and social movements relating to AIDS, she has indeed contributed to re-thinking sexuality. ... A balanced but forceful defence of feminist theory' - Bryan S Turner, University of Cambridge
