Go Back

Race, Class, & So Much More

by Als Leila Ahmed

The only child of two fundamental and volatile national obsessions: manhood and racial dominance.In turn-of-the-century America, cultural ideals of manhood changed profoundly, as Victorian notions of self-restrained, moral manliness were challenged by ideals of an older cousin. It's damage that triggers years of anger and searing self-questioning. Finally, Blow escapes to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to deal with loneliness and the differences between transsexualism and lesser-known types of transgenderism. The volume covers the characteristics of Gender Identity DisorderGender Dysphoria and the slave family, exploring new ways of thinking and being.
