About

This comprehensive scholarly treatment of bisexuality – the first of its kind – gathers together in one volume original contributions by leading sex researchers from North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. The book explores bisexuality from biological, historical, and cultural points of view. It includes discussions on such fundamental issues as methodological criteria and critical analysis, as well as the differences across sexual orientation that impact HIV-risk behaviors in injecting drug users.
