In this eclectic collection of essays, distinguished scholars from different and specialized disciplines discuss aspects of sex, gender, and gender and society. In his contribution to this series of essays on Gender and Society, Peter Goodfellow states, 'sex, the biological separation intomale and female, is controlled by DNA and is determined by DNA. Gender, the arbitrary social division between masculine and feminine, is a social construct that involves interaction between an individual and society.' The definition of gender offered by Goodfellow is cogently developed by GermaineGreer in her essay on women as victims of rapeDSone of the newest and most controversial aspects of modern criminology. Susan Watkins suggests that the understanding of gender has influenced the analysis of population change, the efforts by activists to ensure reductions in fertility internationally,and the acceptance of birth control in local communities in Kenya. This analysis is complimented by Michele Le Doeuff in a discussion of the complex interplay between reduced fertility, increased literacy, and the function of work in the 'everyday life of every woman whatever her social class orlevel of education.' The question of how the sexes differ in their perception and processing of information about their external world is tackled by Lucia Jacobs within a biological and evolutionary context. She proposes that sexual selection should be given credit for the rapid evolution of ourunique abilities and complex culture concluding that 'it is the female that is the smaller, the "ecological" sex, best adapted to survive in the ecological niche of the species, and it is the male who carries the heavier burden or handicap of sexual selection, his fitness dependent on arbitrarytraits that reduce his competitive ability as a human being, although they are all too necessary for his competitive ability as a man.' The contribution of the sociobiologist Sarah Hrdy focussed on sexual selection, drawing on a wide range of research on the physiological and behavioural responsesof subhuman primates but, appropriately, drawing her inspiration from Spencer's own writings on physical beauty and its consequences for posterity. The chapters in this book were originally delivered as The Herbert Spencer Lectures in 1995 at Oxford University.

Raised in the Delta of Mississippi, Jan Cowan is repeatedly molested by her mother’s lesbian lover, Judy Christine Hays, a small-town cop. Immediately after finishing high school, Jan flees Mississippi to Memphis, Tennessee. Patterned after her molester, Jan embarks on a career with the Memphis Police Department where she becomes a noted homicide detective. At the age of thirty-three, an unexpected occurrence triggers Jan’s suppressed memories of having been molested. Unable to cope, Jan’s childhood alter personality, Chris Hays, again manifests itself. In doing so, Chris sets out on a path of lustful revenge by luring lesbians from a gay club and later murdering them. She then displays their nude bodies in a public park on Beale Street, a thriving downtown tourist attraction. As the story unfolds, a private investigator, hired by one of the victim’s father to find the killer, is falsely arrested after being caught near the crime scene where the fifth and final victim is found. One week following the arrest, Jan is greeted at the office by a pair of local fishermen who discovered her badge inside of a trash bag while fishing. Unbeknownst to the fishermen, the bag also contained solid evidence of the murders.

Kristinas, Celestes und Julianas Familie ist die Sekte »Kinder Gottes«, in der sie den Misshandlungen und dem Missbrauch durch erwachsene Sektenmitglieder hilflos ausgesetzt sind. Die Schwestern werden schon früh voneinander getrennt und leben in verschiedenen Missionsstationen der Gemeinschaft. Sie träumen von einem Wiedersehen, fürchten aber den Zorn Gottes, wenn sie sich dem Willen der »Familie« widersetzen. Schonungslos offen erzählen die Schwestern von den seelischen Grausamkeiten und der Gewalt unter dem Deckmantel des Glaubens. Ihre Geschichte ist voller schmerzlicher Erinnerungen, aber auch das Zeugnis einer mutigen Befreiung und dem Weg in ein neues Leben.
