9780205523122: Human Sexuality in a World of Diversity (paperbound) (7th Edition)

The mid-sized Second Canadian Edition of Human Sexuality in a World of Diversity is a briefer, but complete textbook that covers succinctly all the important topics required for today's human sexuality courses.  With a research focus and thoroughly integrated Canadian material, it is 100 pages shorter than the comprehensive hardcover texts. This new edition, in an attractive softcover format, examines the psychology and science of sexuality, emphasizing diversity, critical thinking, responsible decision-making, and sexual health. Coverage is very current and includes new developments in the discipline and in Canadian society in areas such as drugs, technology, hormone replacement therapy, new contraceptives, using the Internet to meet sexual partners, sex education, and sexuality and disabilities.

From the Back Cover :

Human Sexuality in a World of Diversity, Seventh Edition, examines the rich diversity found in human sexuality and helps students develop their own opinions by promoting critical thinking skills, personal sexual health awareness, and responsible decision-making. Firmly rooted in science, the text systematically encourages students to apply the research to their own lives.

 

High-interest features support student learning:

  • Every chapter opens with a Truth or Fiction? quiz that motivates students to challenge common sense, stereotypes, and folklore. Then, throughout the chapter, Truth or Fiction Revisited sections provide feedback to students regarding the accuracy of their assumptions in light of the evidence presented in the chapter.
  • A new feature, SafeZone, features real questions from actual college students, as posed to college instructors throughout the county, accompanied by the authors’ responses. SafeZone answers some of the unasked questions and helps students feel more comfortable asking their own questions.
  • The World of Human Sexuality boxes help students better understand how cultural beliefs, values, and attitudes can influence the expression of sexuality, and introduce them to cultural differences related to gender roles, sexual orientation, sexual jealousy, and premarital and extramarital sexual patterns.
  • A Closer Look boxes provide in-depth discussions of scientific techniques and skill-building exercises such as “Breast Self-Examination,” Self-Examination of the Testes,” and “What to Do If You Suspect You Have Contracted an STD.”
  • Students gain extra support from features like the “Self Assessment” boxed tests, and the “Reflect” and “Critical Thinking” notes in the margins. “Review” and “Recite” sections at the ends of chapters help students reinforce what they have learned.
