NEW YORK UNIVERSITY PRESS Many transgender people find themselves in the bizarre situa�on of having different sex classifica�ons on different documents. This book reveals the hidden logics that have governed sex classifica�on policies in the United States and shows what the regula�on of transgender iden�ty can tell us about society’s approach to sex and gender writ large.

STANFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS Offers a bold argument: that only a radically reformulated approach to human rights will prove adequate to confront and overcome the most consequen�al global problems. Char�ng a new path—away from either common cri�ques of the various incapaci�es of the interna�onal human rights system or advocacy for the status quo— Goodale offers a new vision for human rights as a basis for collec�ve ac�on and moral renewal.
