Mark Johnson - Beauty and Power : Transgendering and Cultural Transformation in the Southern Philippines - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Mark Johnson - Author of : Beauty and Power : Transgendering and Cultural Transformation in the Southern Philippines
Paperback - 256 pages (September 1997) 
Berg Pub Ltd; ISBN: 1859739253

"TransGender Studies; This study of gender and sexual diversity in the Southern Philippines addresses general questions about the relationship between the making of gender and sexualities, the politics of national and ethnic identities and processes of cultural transformation in a world of contract laborers and transnational consumers. The book focuses, in particular, on the meaning and experience of local "gays" - transvestite/transgender-homosexual men - who are at once celebrated as purveyors of beauty (defined in terms of a global American otherness) and marginalized as impotent men and defiled women. In short, America functions as a sign of their abjected status and as a space for imagining and reformulating various gendered identities."

Paperback - 272 pages (January 2002) 
Unknown; ISBN: 1401027199

"TransGender Studies;
A powerful text on a much-overlooked topic in mythology: the bi-gendered gods and heroes throughout time. Although this book's subtitle is "The Transgendered Spirituality Workbook", it would definitely appeal to anyone interested in world mythology, theology, history, or psychology."

Dean Kotula - The Phallus Palace : Female to Male Transsexuals - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Dean Kotula, William E. Parker, Cherie Hiser - Author of : The Phallus Palace : Female to Male Transsexuals
Paperback - 200 pages (July 2002)
Alyson Pubns; ISBN: 1555836542

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"The Phallus Palace is a bold approach to the subject of female to male transexuals (FTMs). Personal testaments from FTMs and contributions from a host of others place the subject of transsexualism into a historical, medical, psychological and cultural context. Captivating photographs guide the reader from the FTMs female personae, through surgical operations, to portraits of the men whose self and public identities are finally revealed as one."

Don Kulick - Travesti : Sex, Gender, and Culture Among Brazilian Transgendered Prostitutes - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Don Kulick - Author of : Travesti : Sex, Gender, and Culture Among Brazilian Transgendered Prostitutes
Paperback - 288 pages (October 1998) 
University of Chicago Press; ISBN: 0226461009

"TransGender Studies; In this dramatic and compelling narrative, anthropologist Don Kulick follows the lives of a group of transgendered prostitutes (called travestis in Portuguese) in the Brazilian city Salvador. Travestis are males who, often beginning at ages as young as ten, adopt female names, clothing styles, hairstyles, and linguistic pronouns. More dramatically, they ingest massive doses of female hormones and inject up to twenty liters of industrial silicone into their bodies to create breasts, wide hips, and large thighs and buttocks. Despite such irreversible physiological changes, virtually no travesti identifies herself as a woman. Moreover, travestis regard any male who does so as mentally disturbed."

Gordene Olga MacKenzie - Transgender Nation - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Gordene Olga MacKenzie - Author of : Transgender Nation
Paperback - 190 pages (May 1994)
Popular Press; ISBN: 0879725974

"TransGender Studies; Gender is the mine field we pass through every day. In the United States, gender is all too often determined by one's anatomical sex. From birth we are bombarded with gender propaganda that supports a repressive dual gender system pitting the sexes and the genders against each other. Transgenderists as gender nonconformists challenge us to rethink traditional discourses on sex and gender. Transgender Nation dares to look at the male-to-woman transgenderist and transsexual from a sociocultural and sociopolitical perspective and maintains that it is not the individual transgenderist who is sick and in need of treatment but rather the culture that must be treated."

Viviane K. Namaste - Invisible Lives: The Erasure of Transsexual & Transgendered People in the Cultural & Institutional World - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Viviane K. Namaste - Author of : Invisible Lives: The Erasure of Transsexual & Transgendered People in the Cultural & Institutional World
Paperback - 320 pages (November 2000)
University of Chicago Press; ISBN: 0226568105

"TransGender Studies; Through combined theoretical and empirical study, this work argues that transgendered people are not so much "produced" by medicine or psychiatry as they are "erased", or made invisible, in a variety of institutional and cultural settings. An analysis is made of two theoretical perspectives on transgendered people - queer theory and the social sciences - displaying how neither of these has adequately addressed the issues most relevant to sex change: everything from employment to health care to identity papers. Namaste then examines some of the rhetorical and semiotic inscriptions of transgendered figures in culture - including studies of early punk and glam rock subcultures - to illustrate how the effacement of transgendered people is organized in different cultural sites. This text concludes with research on some of the day-to-day concerns of transgendered people, offering case studies in violence, health care, gender identity clinics and the law."
