Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

From Publishers Weekly&newline;&newline;&doublequote;Conservatives have dominated the public conversation about sexuality education,&doublequote; declares sociologist Irvine (Disorders of Desire) in this closely observed analysis of the evolution of such dominance. She first focuses on SIECUS, the liberal Sex Information and Education Council of the United States, which promoted sex education in the 1960s; within a decade, the emerging Christian Right was publicly opposing sex ed. During the 1980s, however, the far-reaching Adolescent Family Life Act passed without debate liberals saw it as a tradeoff to protect social programs and enshrined a new tactic: sex education, but for abstinence and against abortion. The subsequent network of sex education providers, pregnancy crisis centers and &doublequote;ex-gay&doublequote; ministries has led to what Irvine calls &doublequote;major institutionalization of evangelical sexual morality as public policy.&doublequote; She also indicates how conservatives have both distorted what actually happens in sex ed and seized on dubious studies to argue, for example, against condoms. Using more postmodern tactics, conservatives have appropriated the language of both feminists and critical race theorists, Irvine says, to argue that simply talking about sex in a sex education class can be abusive. Her dismaying conclusion: conservatives may not have won the culture wars, but they have won on this front, as few students receive the type of comprehensive sex ed that SIECUS advocated. Pointing out that the broader culture is far more sexual than acknowledged in the curriculum, Irvine analytically urges an effort to define childhood so that innocence and protection do not automatically mean sex talk is off-limits. &newline;Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.&newline;&newline;&newline;From Library Journal&newline;&newline;In the war of words over sex education, those trying to restrict it have paradoxically become culturally powerful by talking more-and more explicitly-about sex than their liberal opponents. The Right has risen to power by using emotional, sex-aversive language that has often trumped the barely existent language of sexual affirmation. Moreover, the Christian Right's heavy community activism exploited vacuums caused by the withdrawal of Americans from civic involvement (documented in Robert Putnam's Bowling Alone). Irvine, an academic sociologist (Disorders of Desire), chronicles battle plans, hand-to-hand combat, gay-bashing, mudslinging, strange bedfellows, data use/misuse, and casualties since the 1960s, all backed by exhaustive research and over 75 interviews with both sides. Will the dynamics shift now that anticensorship advocates have entered the fray? Irvine addresses this question while breaking new ground by recounting the Christian Right's own sexuality industry (sex-enhancement guides, curricula, research, counseling, and therapy). Her work complements and updates Jeffrey Moran's broader Teaching Sex. Indispensable for anyone concerned with sexual policy and for social history collections in public and academic libraries.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia Israel, Betsy. Bachelor Girl: The Secret History of Single Women in the Twentieth Century. &newline;Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.
