Library stamps/marks/labels/slip, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "My goal has been to provide the definitive guilde to sex guides, a resource that will give background and understanding and specific title suggestions to librarians, teachers, parents, youth advocates, and young adults themselves. The history of the teen sex manual is a fascinating revelation of American attitudes toward adolescent sexuality and a vital key to understanding the current problem. ... Since the beginning of the form in 1892 there have been nearly four hundred such books written for young adults. I set myself the task of tracking down and evaluating all of them, and I believe I have come as close as is humanly possible. ... The second, and larger, section of Sex Guides is a detailed analysis of the patterns, content, and usefulness of all the contemporary manifestations of the genre. For this I have expanded my sights to include not only modern versions of the traditional teen sex guide but also other sources of noncurricular sex education information, both print and audiovisual. Young adult fiction is an often-overlooked but extremely effective source of sexual learning and here I have tried to show what it is and is not teaching." - Preface. Contents: Preface. Introduction.
