Editorial Reviews


"Two groundbreaking, indispensable guides for serious scholars of sexualities who wish to understand both the heterogeneous sexualities of African Americans and Latinos as well as how greater attention to race, ethnicity, class and culture provides important new directions for the field."
(Patricia Hill Collins author of Black Sexual Politics 2011-01-01)

"Filled with provocative arguments and illuminating insights, Black Sexualities marks a new and exciting epoch in the study of human sexuality and its interactions with race and class; a must-read for scholars and students of ethnic studies and human sexuality."
(Rafael D�az Cesar E. Chavez Institute, San Francisco State University 2009-01-28)

"A path breaking contribution and the definite resource for interdisciplinary scholars in the growing field of Black sexualities. A highly sophisticated intervention that fills the existing void of empirical research in this area, while drawing from and critically engaging with the social and behavioral science literature. This volume will forever challenge us to rethink the categories, methods and approaches scholars use in this rapidly developing field of study."
(Arlene D�vila author of Latino Spin: Public Image and the Whitewashing of Race 2011-01-01)

"Excellent for courses in black, Latino/a, women's, and LGBT studies, and sociology. Highly recommended."
(Choice 2010-05-01)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book that brings to the fore front, issues that plagued Black life but are often over looked. Juan Battle and colleagues give life, understanding, voice to those who have been silenced for so long. Thank you for this literary contribution.
