Correa, Sonia; Petchesky, Rosalind; & Parker, Richard. 2008. Sexuality, Health and Human Rights. New York: Routledge. 312p.
Hailed as a potential classic work, this book explores how rapid changes happening at the beginning of the 21st century in social, cultural, political and economic domains impact on sexuality, health and human rights. The book is divided into three sections: a) "Global 'sex' wars," which discusses the notion of sexualities, its political landscapes internationally, and the return of religious fervour and extremism; b) "Epistomological challenges and research agendas," which examines modern "scientific" understandings of sexuality, its history and the way in which HIV and AIDS has drawn attention to sexuality; and c) "The promise and limits of sexual rights," which discusses human rights approaches to sexuality, its strengths and limitations, and new ways of imagining erotic justice. The publication is useful to professionals, advocates and policy researchers, and is appropriate for a diverse range of courses including gender studies, human sexuality, public health and social policy.
