How important are biological factors, such as hormones, in shaping our sexual destinies? This book brings social developmental, biological, and clinical psychological perspectives to bear on the factors that shape our development as male or female and that cause individuals within each sex to differ from one another in sex-related behaviors. Topics covered include sexual orientation, childhood play; spatial, mathematical, and verbal abilities; nurturance, aggression, dominance, handedness, brain structure, and gender identity.
