"Debating Sex and Gender offers a clear, concise, and useful overview of methodological, interpretive, and historical distinctions between sex and gender. The text arrives with refreshingly transparent language, balanced analytical construction, and a compelling, enthusiastic tone that draws the reader into its points and points of view. Clearly directed toward undergraduates, it is the sort of text that will easily find its way into Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies courses."--Thomas F. DeFrantz, MIT "The volume provides a clear, interesting, and comprehensive overview of the range of views concerning sex and gender. I predict that it will be used not only in women's studies classes, but also in feminist classes in various disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, and sociology."--Nancy Tuana, Penn State University "A concise yet rich guide to the sex/gender debates. . . . Professor Warnke has crafted an incisive synthesis of debates around a set of questions that have consistently preoccupied scholars for nearly six decades."--Lessie Jo Frazier, Indiana University "Debating Sex and Gender is wonderfully clear, rigorous, and well-balanced. In fifteen years of teaching philosophy and feminism, this is quite the best comprehensive treatment of the topic I have encountered."--Susan Dwyer, University of Maryland
