Summary
"Today sex is treated as a natural duality in which males and females are fundamentally different, but as Rosemary Joyce demonstrates in this groundbreaking book, there has never been a single way that social life has been organized by sex. The ancient Greeks saw men and women as expressing varying degrees of a single sexual potential; many Native American societies considered sexual identity as something that changed and developed during a lifetime, and recognized three or four categories of sexual identity."
