Using humor and a contemporary voice, HUMAN SEXUALITY FROM CELLS TO SOCIETY, 1E engages students to acquire a greater knowledge of their bodies, their values, and their relationships with others. This concise, comprehensive, and up-to-date text emphasizes critical thinking -- in both human sexuality research as well as the students' own sexual lives -- and is geared to help students understand the diverse foundations of sexuality, as well as provide skills to evaluate current research and data. Working from a multidisciplinary perspective, the author's approach is accessible to both students and instructors without a background in biology or critical thinking, and allows students to see how human sexuality interrelates with psychology, biology, health, law, media, religion, and other topics that at first glance seem unrelated.
