Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 Díaz 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 Dávila 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)

From the Inside Flap

From questioning forces that have constrained sexual choices to examining how Blacks have forged healthy sexual identities in an oppressive environment, "Black Sexualities" acknowledges the diversity of the Black experience and the shared legacy of racism. Contributors seek resolution to Blacks' understanding of their lives as sexual beings through stories of empowerment, healing, self-awareness, victories, and other historic and contemporary life-course panoramas and provide practical information to foster more culturally relative research, tolerance, and acceptance

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.
