Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

We have erronous assumptions of what Latin sexuality is all about and this is one of the major works on how Latinos are brought to have the particular ideas about sexuality that they have. Schifter analyses how Latin gender is a threat to human rights and how young people use gender to develop their ethical guidelines.
