About the Author

Dave King and Richard Ekins are the leading world sociologists in this field and have mined it richly since the 1970's. Tales of Transgendering brings together a brilliant synthesis of history, case studies, ideas and positions as they have emerged over the past thirty years. The book brings together a rich but always grounded account of this field, providing a state of the art collection of critical concepts and ideas to take this field further during the twenty first century. This is a must read for all interested in this new area of inquiry - Ken Plummer, Professor of Sociology, University of Essex. Editor of Sexualities. Author of Intimate Citizenship

Reviews

"This book is indispensable for anyone working in (trans)gender and sexuality studies and is a vital history of the interrelationships among these various transgendering narratives in Europe and America from the early 1970's to the present. The authors deftly move across disciplines, from early sociologist George Herbert Mead to Michel Foucault and Kate Bornstein, making this book a welcome relief from some of the narrow, discipline-bound work in transgender and sexuality studies. Summing up: Essential Upper-division division undergraduates and above." -- J.M Irvine
