Reviews

“Children, Sexuality, and Sexualization provides a nuanced and deep understanding of sexuality from various nations and cultures. The link between culture, norms and sexuality becomes clearer and shows how children and young men and women engage in, modify and negate sexuality based on the country that they live in. … a valuable resource in the study of gender, sexuality, psychology, sociology, childhood studies and anthropology. … anyone interested in the sexuality of children will find the book helpful and engaging.” (Hennie Weiss, Metapsychology, Vol. 20 (4), January, 2016)

"This is a comprehensive collection which takes the gap in our knowledge about the sexual cultures of children and young people as the starting point for investigation. With a clear emphasis on empirical research and on the contributions that a range of disciplines can make to the study of children's and young people's sexualities, the collection moves beyond the sensational, simplistic and often moralistic approaches which often characterize work in this area. A groundbreaking book which will be required reading for academics who work on gender, sexuality, children and young people". - Feona Attwood, Professor of Cultural Studies, Communication and Media, Middlesex University UK

'Reading this book unsettles and challenges traditional narratives of becoming sexual. Assembled by three leading scholars in the field, this collection contributes fresh ways of thinking about sexualization, attending to the complex array of historical and contemporary debates that shape what we think we know about child sexuality.'-Mary Lou Rasmussen, Monash University, Australia
