Editorial Reviews

Review

"As both a prefix and an adjective, 'trans' goes over, across, and beyond, making the possibilities seem endless for trans(gender) studies. However, to advance or progress requires some point of departure. For trans(gender) studies to evolve, we must have a solid understanding of where it all began. The Transgender Studies Reader is indispensable for its ability to encapsulate the century of dialog that has become what appears to be a decade-old phenomenon."

— Brice Smith, Women's Studies Quarterly

The depth and breadth of the articles included in this compendium are astounding to say the least. In one large volume the authors have included samples of writings representing the theoretical to the practical and the lived experience in a time line from the 19th century through the present. The Reader gives a sense of our shared history from a wide variety of view points which affirms all of our lives. As a transgendered person and college student, I recommend the The Transgender Reader to anyone looking for clues to our hidden culture and the world we struggle in everyday.

Thought it was an outstanding selection of writings over the last two centuries, along with educational commentary, that led to major changes in understanding variant gender expressions and social changes regarding the acceptance of various gender expressions. These changes have led to a fast growing acceptance of varied gender expressions and to an important new academic discipline of "Transgender Studies."

The book arrived promptly. It was needed for a course reserve so the prompt service and delivery were greatly appreciated.
