Trans people's partnerships : towards an ethics of intimacy - Sanger, Tam
Call Number: HQ77.9 .S27 2010
ISBN: 9780230224643
"As intimate lives become more public, and discussions of gender and sexuality more complex, there is a need to rethink how we engage with our own perceptions and identifications with respect to intimacy. This book explores whether our intimate desires are limited by social norms and expectations, and if so what we might be able to do about it."

Why people cooperate : the role of social motivations - Tyler, Tom R
Call Number: BF503 .T955 2011
