Drawing on fieldwork, this book offers a cross-cultural study of transvestism through an examination of transvestites in Britain and the Hijras of India. It tackles the question of whether or not transvestism is motivated primarily by sex or gender, and also challenges the straightforward binary divide that dominates Western theories of gender.
