Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sexually Aggressive Women is a revelation--even for someone who spends a lot of her time studying sex! The voices in this well-written and well-researched volume are intelligent and the coverage is very broad. The variety of approaches do justice to the complexity of the subject. Researchers will get pointers on how to study some subtleties of sexual interaction they may have missed, and students will get a better idea of the full continuum of female sexual behavior. Many readers will be shocked to find that women are capable of the same kinds of illegitimate acts that men commit. If anyone ever thought women were immune to the allure of power and control, this book will disabuse them of that notion. I commend the editors and authors for their contribution." --Pepper Schwartz, PhD, Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Washington

"Long-overdue, challenging, and controversial. Sexuality professionals and students will find new, often surprising insights in this presentation of solid, cutting-edge research and theory about sexually aggressive women." --Robert T. Francoeur, editor of Sexuality in America: Understanding Our Sexual Values and Behavior

About the Author

Peter B. Anderson, PhD, is an associate professor of health and human sexuality education in the Department of Human Performance and Health Promotion at the University of New Orleans. Dr. Anderson received his doctorate from the human sexuality program of the Department of Health Education at New York University. He and Deborah Richie, MA (health educator at the McKinley Health Center, University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana), are the only alumni of the program who later became leaders of the international study portion of NYU's program in human sexuality. In the summers of 1992 and 1994, Dr. Anderson and Ms. Richie (with Dr. Robert Francoeur in 1992) took students from NYU to Copenhagen, Denmark, to study cross-cultural issues in human sexuality. This is Dr. Anderson's second edited volume. Dr. Anderson has worked, published, and studied in the area of human sexuality for the past 25 years.

Cindy Struckman-Johnson, PhD, received her doctorate in social psychology from the University of Kentucky at Lexington. She is presently a professor of psychology at the University of South Dakota, where she teaches courses in social psychology, sex roles, and sexuality. Dr. Struckman-Johnson is the recipient of numerous teaching awards and has gained special recognition for her course, "Understanding the Sexes." In collaboration with David Struckman-Johnson, she presently conducts research on sexual coercion of men in campus and prison settings, persuasive appeals for condom use, and seat-belt safety. Dr. Struckman-Johnson has served as a consulting editor for the Journal of Sex Research. In 1997, the Society for the Scientific Study of Sex awarded Cindy and David Struckman-Johnson the Beigel Award for research excellence for their work on sexual coercion of men and women in prison.

Contains a lot of data about a largely unresearched issue. However, the study seems to slightly hold itself back on fears of "promoting backlash against feminism". However, this does not mean it doesn't challenge existing gender stereotypes. In fact, it is incredibly progressive, and I do highly recommend reading it. I took a star off because of the largely obscurist chapter "A Feminist Analysis", which contains a shocking display of victim blaming on p.171 by Wendy Stock. Let it be noted, this should not warrant a change of mind regarding reading this book.

I ordered this book for my brother, who was doing research in psychology. He says it arrived as scheduled, in the condition stated in the description. Unfortunately, it was not exactly what he was looking for, but he appreciates the service he recieved.
