Transpeople: Repudiation, Trauma, Healing

by Christopher A. Shelley - £23.99  University of Toronto Press (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780802095398 | ISBN 10: 0802095399

"Christopher A. Shelley's Transpeople displays an impressive amount of research and admirable equanimity in treating different points of view in the fields of trans and queer studies. His interviews with transsexual and transgendered individuals make for some moving reading - Shelley shows strong understanding of and empathy with those he calls "transpeople." "
(Jay Prosser, School of English, University of Leeds)
" Transpeople makes important contributions to current studies of transgender people as well as to the field of psychology. Christopher A. Shelley's study is rigorous, well presented, and a pleasure to read."
(Vivian Namaste, Simone de Beauvoir Institute, Concordia University)
"Transpeople surpasses recent studies of transsexual/transgender subjects with its innovative methodology and originality. Christopher A. Shelley skillfully maps the experiences of transpeople in health care, relationships, public institutions, education, and employment as well as with often violent forms of social and cultural repudiation. The author is to be commended for producing a book of such scope."
(Bobby Noble, School of Women's Studies, York University)
