Beschreibung"Building upon earlier critiques of the medical management of gender, Hausman provides a rich analysis of the significance of technology on this century's shift from looking for the "true" sex to the "best" one. Having tracked down valuable and fascinating sources, she gives a previously neglected historical perspective on transsexualism and intersexuality. Gender scholars from every discipline will find this book important."--Suzanne Kessler, Purchase College, State University of New York

Pressestimmen""Changing Sex" makes a landmark contribution to gender studies and the understanding of transsexualism. It is thorough and accessible in its combination of medical analysis, social criticism, and application of critical theory. It is original and provocative, and will be controversial in the best sense."--Julia Epstein, Haverford College
