Over the past twenty years, transgender studies has emerged as a vibrant field of interdisciplinary scholarship. First collected in Routledge's own The Transgender Studies Readerin 2006,the field has moved on, rapidly expanding in many directions. The Transgender Studies Reader 2gathers these disparate strands of scholarship, and collects them into a format that makes sense for teaching and research. Complimenting the first volume, rather than competing with it, The Transgender Studies Reader 2 consists of fifty articles, with a general introduction by the editors, explanatory head notes for each essay, and bibliographical suggestions for further research. Unlike the first volume, which was historically based, tracing the lineage of the field, this volume focuses on recent work and emerging trends. To foster more interactivity, and to keep pace with this rapidly changing area, the reader will now have a companion website, with images, links to blogs, video, and other material to help supplement the book.
