Performance, Theatre, and Society in Contemporary Nicaragua:

Spectacles of Gender, Sexuality, and Marginality
Alberto Guevara
ISBN: 9781604978612

This book fills the gap by examining the connections between Nicaragua’s marginalized landscapes and bodies, between social/political visibility and invisibility, and the relationship between social abandonment and social encompassment in the nation.

Grounded Theory and Disability Studies:

An Investigation Into Legacies of Blindness
Simon Hayhoe
ISBN: 9781604978285

Sex, Love, and Fidelity:

A Study of Contemporary Romantic Relationships
Kassia R. Wosick
ISBN: 9781604978322

Kassia Wosick reports on ... couples that were straight and gay, monogamous and non-monogamous, traditional and polyamorous. ... The traditional focus on sexual exclusivity does not fit many contemporary relationships. This is a very valuable book for researchers and therapists, and for all of us who care about ‘love,’ ‘sex,’ and ‘faithfulness’.” – Professor Francesca Cancian, University of California, Irvine Read More..
