Dallas Denny - Gender Dysphoria: A Guide to Research - GLBT Non-Fiction  All Books by Dallas Denny - Author of : Gender Dysphoria: A Guide to Research
Hardcover (May 1994)
Garland Pub; ISBN: 081530840X

"TransGender Studies; Gender dysphoria is a sense of inappropriateness about one's assigned sex and the associated gender role. In its most commonly recognized form, transsexualism, it is a pervasive and persistent discomfort with one's anatomic sex, with a concomitant desire to be rid of the primary and secondary sex characteristics and to replace them with those of the other sex. Following a foreword by Vern L. Bullough and an introduction by the author/compiler, this bibliography includes separate sections for fiction and nonfiction books and for book chapters and journal articles. There is another section for important legal cases. Some (minority) of the entries are annotated."

Holly Devor - F. T. M.: Female-to-Male Transsexuals in Society - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Holly Devor - Author of : F. T. M.: Female-to-Male Transsexuals in Society
Paperback - 695 pages (March 1, 1999) 
Indiana University Press; ISBN: 0253212596

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
""The book alternates specialized academic analysis with the individual studies, and should be of interest to both professionals who work with transsexuals and scholars interested in gender theory." - Choice

"Writing with an intelligent and accessible style, Dr. Devor balances exposition, analysis, and excerpts from her subjects' interviews to present a coherent picture of what social life is like for FTMs as they find their identity and learn about themselves." - Jamison "James" Green

The author of the groundbreaking book Gender Blending here turns her attention to the little-known world of female-to-male transsexuals. Who are they? How do they come to know themselves as transsexual? What do they do about it? How do their families cope? Who loves them? What does it mean for the rest of us?"

Richard Ekins - Male Femaling: A Grounded Approach to Cross-Dressing and Sex-Changing - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Richard Ekins - Author of : Male Femaling: A Grounded Approach to Cross-Dressing and Sex-Changing
Paperback - 200 pages (March 1997) 
Routledge; ISBN: 0415106257

"TransGender Studies; Ekins vividly details the innermost desires and the varied practices of males who wear the clothes of women for the pleasure it gives them (cross-dressers), or who are actively changing sex (sex-changers). Based upon seventeen years of fieldwork, life history work, qualitative analysis, archival work and contact with several thousand cross-dressers and sex-changers, the book develops a theory of male femaling which has major ramifications for both the field of transvestism and transsexualism, and for the analysis of sex and gender more generally."

"TransGender Studies; Guidance for counselors working with transsexuals: men who want to be women, and women who want to be men. While transsexualism has always been part of the human experience, only recently have people "trapped in the wrong body" sought psychological care in large numbers. This book provides background about this controversial condition, enabling clinicians to help people undergoing gender transition as they deal with hormonal treatments, legal dilemmas, surgical options, family destabilization, and work-related issues."

Paperback - 222 pages (June 1997) 
Beacon Pr; ISBN: 0807079413

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"Leslie Feinberg has been a leader in the transgender rights movement as long as such a movement has existed. This book is both deeply personal and widely researched. Feinberg examines perceptions of the body, the status of clothing, and the structures of societies that welcome or are threatened by gender variance. The portrait gallery that closes the book contains photographs and capsule biographies of contemporary transgendered people."

Claudine Griggs - S/he : Changing Sex and Changing Clothes - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Claudine Griggs - Author of : S/he : Changing Sex and Changing Clothes
Paperback - 320 pages (January 1998) 
Berg Pub Ltd; ISBN: 1859739164

"TransGender Studies; Through an examination of the experience of transsexuals, this work aims to enhance understanding of how gender can and does function in powerful, complex and subtle ways. While highlighting how the gender identity of transsexuals relates to hormonal and surgical changes in the body as well as to changes in dress, the book investigates the pressures and motivations to conform to expected gender roles, and the ways in which these are affected by social, educational and professional status. Differences in the experiences of those who change from male to female and those who change from female to male are also examined."

Judith Halberstam - Female Masculinity - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Judith Halberstam - Author of : Female Masculinity
Paperback - 329 pages (October 1998) 
Duke Univ Pr (Trd); ISBN: 0822322439

"TransGender Studies; Readers who have followed the postmodern gender debate in the university presses (ranging from Thais Morgan's sedately twisted analyses of Victorian male lesbianism to Judith Butler's acclaimed Gender Trouble) will delight in the latest little earthquake: Judith Halberstam's deft separation of masculinity from the male body in Female Masculinity. If what we call "masculinity" is taken to be "a naturalized relation between maleness and power," Halberstam argues, "then it makes little sense to examine men for the contours of that masculinity's social construction." We can learn more from other embodiments of masculinity, like those found in drag-king performances, in the sexual stance of the stone butch, and in female-to-male transgenderism. Halberstam's subject is so new to critical discourse that her approach can be somewhat scattershot--there is simply too much to say--but her prose is lucid and deliberate, and her attitude refreshingly relaxed. Essential reading for gender studies and a lively contribution to cultural studies in general."
