The contributors, an interdisciplinary group of social scientists representing anthropology, sociology, public health, and psychology, illuminate the role of sexuality in producing and reproducing inequality, difference, and structural violence among a range of populations in various geographic, historical, and cultural arenas.

In particular, the essays consider racial minorities including Hispanics, Koreans, and African Americans- discuss disabled people- examine issues including substance abuse, sexual coercion, and HIV/AIDS- and delve into other topics including religion and politics.

Rather than emphasizing sexuality as an individual trait, the essays view it as a social phenomenon, focusing in particular on cultural meaning and real-world processes of inequality such as racism and homophobia. The authors address the complex and challenging question of how the research under discussion here can make a real contribution to the struggle for social justice.
