Editorial Reviews


"Outstanding Academic Book 1997. The list of contributors is a virtual who's who of scholars in sexual science."—Choice

"Best Reference Sources of 1997. An extraordinary, highly valuable synthesis of information not available elsewhere."—Library Journal

"An invaluable, unique scholarly work that no library should be without."—Contemporary Psychology

Awarded a Citation of Excellence for an Outstanding Reference Work of Sexology by the American Foundation for Gender and Genital Medicine and Science

"Francoeur and Noonan had libraries' limited shelf space and budgets in mind when they consolidated the four previous volumes of this encyclopedia (released sequentially) into one treasure-trove…The articles are written straightforwardly and from a multidisciplinary perspective by a panel of 270 trained natives or area experts…Given the updating and compactness, it could be useful even where the previous volumes are available." -Library Journal

“A dry recitation of virtues would undervalue this incomparable volume’s wealth of useful and fascinating information. Its creators commendably consider space and expense, while preserving the high quality of the multivolume edition. Highly recommended.” – M.C. Duhig, Choice, 9/04 (CHOICE)

"The Continuum Complete International Encyclopedia of Sexuality is an Everest of sexual cross-cultural research. It has raised the bar of sexological scholarship to a rigorous new level and will remain a standard reference work for years to come." John Heidenry, author of What Wild Ecstasy: The Rise and Fall of the Sexual Revolution

Winner of the AASECT Annual Book Award 2005 (American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors andTherapists)

“This is a magnificent compilation of material about a wide range of sexual topics, presented with disarming regard to socio-cultural sensitivities. I hesitate to offer any substantial criticisms to a group that has produced such a definitive work.… Is bigger better? In this case the answer is definitely ‘YES.’… For anyone who teaches university classes on cultural diversity I would say that should be required reading for students and professors alike.… As Dr. Reiss writes in the first sentence of his chapter, ‘Welcome to this treasure chest of sexological knowledge and understanding.” –Sexuality and Culture Journal, Paul Fedoroff, Fall 2005

“A valuable reference work made better…The original international encyclopedia of sexuality consisted of four volumes. This well-written, updated, and more comprehensive edition is published as a single volume. This well-written, updated, and more comprehensive edition is published as a single volume. It is a job well done on what could only be called an impossible task.…there is simply nothing else like it. I recommend it most highly.” –The Journal of Sex Research, Vern L. Bullough, Ph.D., 2/05

“No ordinary encyclopedia…a wealth of information synthesized by many contributors who are often both natives and authorities on sexuality in the countries they describe.” –The Journal of Sex Research, Suzanne G. Frayser, 2/05

“The wealth of in-depth knowledge contained here cannot be overemphasized.… Large public and academic libraries not owning the original four volumes of The International Encyclopedia of Sexuality will want to purchase this update, as will institutions with collections in men’s studies, women’s studies, and gay/lesbian studies.” –American Reference Books Annual, Vol. 36, 2005 (American Reference Books Annual)
