Bisexuality
The Psychology and Politics of an Invisible Minority

Edited by:

Other Titles in:
Gay & Lesbian Studies

October 1996 | 360 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume fills a gap in the literature on the subject of bisexuality and provides an insight into and clarification of this emerging paradigm shift in sexual orientation studies. The interdisciplinary range of contributors agree that, given recognition and validity, bisexuality has the explanatory power to illuminate many of those elements of sexual orientation and sexual identity which have, to date, remained unexplored.
