"Author Craig Hill has created a comprehensive text unique in its approach to the literature on sexuality and relationship status, biological factors affecting specific aspects of sexuality, and adult sexual decision-making. This text successfully communicates psychological theories and theory-guided research while maintaining its appeal to undergraduates. Moreover, the material is inclusive in its consideration of research on gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and race. Craig Hill's Human Sexuality is a vital tool to any faculty member teaching a course in human sexuality."
"Although intended as a textbook, this accessible book could as well serve in an academic collection as a useful source of background material for a variety of readers."
It was the best text that I found that combined gender and sexuality from a psychological perspective. I was however disappointed in the lack of recent references as it is published in 2007. My students felt the treatment of LBGTQ issues was old-fashioned harkening to the deviant days of years past. Is there a new edition on the horizon?
I found 'Human Sexuality' to be an excellent textbook. My students have embraced the context's of it's pages which were facilitated during their module Universal Issues in Counselling: Sexuality.
As not many lectures go into this matter in great depth (within the module), this is an excellent text for any student to read outside of the framework of the lectures. This is especially the case if working on essays or dissertations related to sexuality. A thorough assessment of human sexuality is given and there is a mass of research and references provided for the reader to use to their advantage and follow up.
Hill's Human Sexuality text is comprehensive in including LGBTQI-2S, as well as race, ethnicity, religion, class, and immigration. It offers a multiplicity of psychological theories and their intersection with human sexuality. Additionally Dr. Hill provides extensive opportunity for readers to engage critically with the material as well as highlight areas of needed research.
This book is a useful and comprehensive introduction to understanding the complexity of sexuality.
“Human Sexuality” offers an appealing synthesis of the social, bio- and differential psychological aspects of sex research. Its additional focus on developmental psychological ascendants, the cultural and/or religious contexts and a historical course of human sexuality makes it stand out favorably from other volumes about this topic.
This book is useful for practitioners to extend their understanding of the wide and complex issues in sexual health.
A valuable ressource with respect to human sexuality. Similar textbooks in German language concerning sexuality form a social viewpoint are not easy to find. So, this textbook is great for students.
Layout & Design: Could be a bit more lively/modern.
Very valuable book with detail yet still within grasp for undergraduates. I would have considered this text essential if it weren't for the price tag which is a bit hefty for my students. But I will definitely strongly suggest that they do get the book if they can afford it.
An informative text that engages students from the outset. A wide range of topics are covered which demonstrates how multi-disciplinary this textbook is. Highly recommended to those not just studying Psychology but also Youth Studies and Criminology.
I like the emphasis on the broader psychological views of sexuality. This books reads more like a psychology textbook and not a health/biology text and will be much more applicable in my course.
This text is takes the most purely academic approach without being offensive. There is a diversity of topics and it has a balanced approach to controversial issues.
