Dual attraction : understanding bisexuality by Martin S Weinberg( )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past two generations, extensive research has been conducted on the determinants of homosexuality. But, until now, scant attention has been paid to what is perhaps the most mysterious--and potentially illuminating--variation of human sexual expression, bisexuality. Today, as ignorance and fear of AIDS makes greater awareness of all forms of sexual behavior an urgent matter of private and public consequence, leading sex researchers Martin Weinberg, Colin Williams, and Douglas Pryor provide us with the first major study of bisexuality. Weinberg, Williams, and Pryor explore the riddle of dual attraction in their study of 800 residents of San Francisco. Fieldwork, intensive interviews, and surveys provided a wealth of data about the nature of bisexual attraction, the steps that lead people to become bisexual, and how sexual preference can change over time. They found that heterosexuals, more often than homosexuals, become bisexual; that bisexual men and women differ markedly in their sexual behavior and romantic feelings; that most bisexuals ultimately settle into long-term relationships while continuing sexual activity outside those relationships; and they also explain why transsexuals often become bisexual. Moreover, the authors discovered that as the AIDS crisis unfolded, many bisexual men entered into monogamous relationships with women, and bisexual women into more lesbian relationships. Recent media accounts attest that a growing number of researchers and writers are narrowing the fundamental cause of sexual preference to a single factor, biology. But if, as this study shows, learning plays a significant part in helping people traverse the boundaries of gender, if past and present intimate relationships influence their changing preferences, and if bisexual activity is inseparable from a social environment which provides distinctive sexual opportunities, then a mosaic of factors far more complex than those previously considered must be entertained in explaining the fuller spectrum of sexual preferences. Dual Attraction is one of the most significant contributions to our understanding of sexuality since the original Kinsey reports and Bell and Weinberg's 1978 international bestseller, Homosexualities. It is must reading for all those interested in the study of sexual behavior--especially now, since the onset of AIDS
The study of social problems: five perspectives by Earl Rubington( Book )

80 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This critically acclaimed volume delineates seven sociological perspectives used to examine social problems--social pathology, social disorganization, value conflict, deviant behavior, labeling, the critical perspective, and social constructionism. Unlike most introductory texts, which are organized topically around issues such as drug abuse, racial violence, and juvenile delinquency, this anthology focuses on the major theoretical perspectives used to examine social problems. Each section begins with an overview of the main contributors to the perspective, its history, and an outline of its major characteristics, and closes with a critique of the perspective and questions for discussion. For this edition, the editors have significantly updated the text, the readings, and the annotated references. New selections cover such topics as the decline of a Black community, white-collar crime, the devaluation of women, the universalization of social problems, how to successfully construct a social problem, and child sexual abuse. Long a standard in its field, The Study of Social Problems, 6/e is an indispensable volume for building a strong theoretical foundation in courses on social problems."--Jacket

Deviance : the interactionist perspective by Earl Rubington( Book )

31 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This highly successful readers presents the interactionist approach to the study of deviance, examining deviance as a social phenomenon that consists of a set of interpretations and social reactions. The first half of the book (Parts I and II) deals with how people define some persons as deviant and act on the basis of these designations. The second half of the book (Parts III and IV) discusses the deviants themselves: how they respond to being typed by others, how they type themselves, and how deviant groups are formed." -- Back cover
