This book is a collection of papers on sex and gender written from 1973 to 1998. Most were written by the author, others were co-authored, and many on cross-gender disorders were written with Lionel Ovesey, to whom the book is dedicated. The author notes that she specifically omitted essays that focused on love, differentiating this volume from her previous well-known and well-received book.1
