Using rich case material and research presented by distinguished authorities in the fields of sex, couple, family, and psychotherapy, this edited book contributes to our efforts to help individuals and couples increase their sexual satisfaction. The authors explore social and cultural backgrounds, the meaning of sexual problems in specific cultural contexts, and the way in which culture presents challenges to traditional psychotherapy. More importantly, they answer the question: should therapists accept any and all behaviors, values, and attitudes that are considered normal, even if they violate the therapist’s own cultural standards? The case studies identify challenging cultural issues and provide clinicians with culturally sensitive treatment options. The book’s sections also separate chapters based on the degree to which psychological treatments are recognized and utilized for dealing with sexual problems in different countries, making it an ideal reference for professionals and students. The concluding chapter looks at culture through the lens of the provider, rather than the patient, and ties together the major themes and questions posed.

In this book, Gargi Bhattacharyya examines the way in which western imperial violence associates itself with the rhetoric of rights and democracy--a project of bombing for freedom that calls into question the validity of western conceptions of democracy, rights and feminism. Such rhetoric has accompanied actions that go beyond simply protecting western interests or securing access to scarce resources. The articulations of racism that appear with the war on terror are animated by fears and sexual fantasies inexplicable by rational interest alone. Understanding this highly sexualized racism reveals the intense contradictions of imperial relations and the attempts to normalize violent expropriation.

From Walt Whitman to Boy George, gay culture has profoundly shaped American society. "Culture Clash" looks at gay male culture in everything from drag shows to the Marlboro man to pornography; from the cults surroundings stars like Mae West and Judy Garland to the avant garde gay theaters that have revolutionized Broadway productions. Mainstream America has experienced a siginificant cultural confrontation and integration-- between gay liberation and "the heterosexual dictatorship"-- and each has permanently changed the other. "Culture Clash" explores the dynamics of gay liberation and homophobia, of change and backlash, and reveals the radicalism of the challenge that gay men and lesbians, as cultural adventurers, have offered to American society.
