Editorial Reviews

Review

." . . an important contribution to our understanding of the history of human sexuality within the context of a multicultural society . . . disturbing . . . provocative . . . Hurtado crafts a new dimension to the word 'frontier.'"

," . . a sensitive, thoughtful, and thought-provoking piece of scholarship that examines stories about people living in California . . . "Intimate Frontiers" is an important work . . . ."

""Intimate Frontiers" . . . does a masterful job of explaining in clear, jargon-free language, the theoretical keystones of contemporary gender scholarship. . . . Exceptional, sensational, and unrelentingly grim."

"A must-read for scholars of women and gender in the West and for Borderlanders. Albert L. Hurtado's "Intimate Frontiers" is a fast-paced yet dense study, filled with interesting anecdotes, memorable characters, and fascinating gender analysis. Its short length, simultaneously topical and chronological chapters, and interesting use of gender theory make it ideal for classroom use."
