About this book

In Sex, Gender and Science , Myra Hird outlines the social study of science and nature, specifically in relation to 'sex', sex 'differences' and sexuality. She examines how Western understandings of 'sex' are based less upon understanding material sex differences, than on a discourse that emphasizes sex dichotomy over sex diversity and argues for a feminist engagement with scientific debate that embraces the diversity and complexity of nature.

Reviews

'...the wealth of informatin presented here...is invaluable to those grappling with the social construction of 'sex' and 'sex differences'...it is refreshing to read research that has 'gone back' to the body and recognized its genetic and material realities.' - Danny Beusch, Sociology (British Sociological Association)
