Gender on the Edge: Transgender, Gay, and Other Pacific Islanders, Besnier, Niko and Kalissa Alexeyeff, eds.
2 Besnier, Niko and Kalissa Alexeyeff, eds. Gender on the Edge: Transgender, Gay, and Other Pacific Islanders
Honolulu, Hawaii University of Hawai'i Press, 2014 0824838831 / 9780824838836 Paperback As New Paperback 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition softcover copy, with unfurled tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear. Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. From the publisher's blurb, "Transgender identities and other forms of gender and sexuality that transcend the normative pose important questions about society, culture, politics, and history. They force us to question, for ex- ample, the forces that divide humanity into two gender categories and render them necessary, inevitable, and natural. The transgender also exposes a host of dynamics that, at first glance, has little to do with gender or sex, such as processes of power and domination; the complex relationship among agency, subjectivity, and structure; and the mutual constitution of the global and the local. Particularly intriguing is the fact that gender and sexual diversity appear to be more prevalent in some regions of the world than in others. Gender on the Edge is an exploration of the ways in which non-normative gendering and sexuality in one such region, the Pacific Islands, are implicated in a wide range of socio-cultural dynamics that are at once local and global, historical, and contemporary. The editors recognize that different social configurations, cultural contexts, and historical trajectories generate diverse ways of being transgender across the societies of the region, but they also acknowledge that these differences are overlaid with commonalities and predictabilities. Rather than focusing on the definition of identities, the contributors engage with the fact that identities do things, that they are performed in everyday life, that they are transformed through events and movements, and that they are constantly negotiated. By addressing the complexities of these questions over time and space, this volume provides a model for future endeavors that seek to embed dynamics of gender and sexuality in a broad field of theoretical import." vi + 378 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

5 Gopinath, Praseeda Scarecrows of Chivalry: English masculinities after Empire
Charlottesville, Virginia University of Virginia Press, 2013 First Edition Soft Cover Fine Soft Cover 12mo 7" - 7 
A sterling condition trade paperback with tight binding, no markings, and little if any wear to the cover. Slight crimping along top edge of final three pages, else As New. Illustrated softpaper wraps. Notes, index, bibliography, etc. Lots of black-and-white photographs and illustrations. From the publisher, "Exploring the fate of the ideal of the English gentleman once the empire he was meant to embody declined, Praseeda Gopinath argues that the stylization of English masculinity became the central theme, focus, and conceit for many literary texts that represented the "condition of Britain" in the 1930s and the immediate postwar era. From the early writings of George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh to works by poets and novelists such as Philip Larkin, Ian Fleming, Barbara Pym, and A. S. Byatt, the author shows how Englishmen trafficking in the images of self-restraint, governance, decency, and detachment in the absence of a structuring imperial ethos became what the poet Larkin called "scarecrows of chivalry." Gopinath's study of this masculine ideal under duress reveals the ways in which issues of race, class, and sexuality constructed a gendered narrative of the nation. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
