Book by Irvine Janice M


"[A] well-researched book, one that will be referred to the on-going battle to create a legitimate area of scientific inquiry out of a topic that still elicits titters." --The San Francisco Review of Books "A groundbreaking and insightful critique of American sexology which analyzes the field's pervasive, often unacknowledged assumptions about sex and gender. A rich, witty, nuanced account that combines an astute sociology of science with a commitment to progressive sexual politics. Sexology will never be the same." --Carole S. Vance, Ph.D., M.P.H., Columbia University School of Public Health "Tells with wit how a struggling sexology movement took Kinsey's liberating message about sexuality and tried to mainstream it and legitimize it. Irvine shows how value and gender issues--especially those about women-interfered repeatedly with the presentation of a unified sexual science." --Zella Luria, The Mary Ingraham Bunting Institute, Radcliffe College "An intelligent and provocative historical account of the strengths and weaknesses of the sexology profession." --John D'Emilio, University of North Carolina, and co-author of Intimate Matters: A History of Sexuality in America "Disorders of Desire is a comprehensive, nuanced investigation... [Irvine] combines an outsider's perspective with an insider's knowledge of the field to explore the professionalization of modern American sexology and its underlying ideologies, the role of sexology in the historical construction of sexual disease, and the field's relationship to shifting political, cultural, economic and demographic trends." --Arlene J. Stein, The San Francisco Bay Times
