Writing as an insider and an anthropologist, Jason Cromwell presents the first in-depth examination of what it means to be a female-bodied transperson. Through extensive participant observation and open-ended interviews, Transmen and FTMs allows female-to-male transsexuals to speak for themselves and reveal aspects of female gender diversity that do not fit into the ready-made categories of male and female.   In clarifying how transmen and FTMs define and validate their lives, as opposed to how society attempts to pigeonhole and belittle them, Cromwell shows how female-to-male transpeople have been made virtually invisible by male-dominated discourses. He considers cross-cultural data on female gender diversity, historical evidence of female-bodied people who have lived as men, and contemporary transmen and FTMs. He also addresses how FTMs and transmen are working to challenge the mental illness model of transness as well as other misconceptions.  Transmen and FTMs seeks to reframe the dialogue about gender identity and move away from regarding fixed gender categories as normative. By redefining gender diversity from a manifestation of pathology to a human condition Transmen and FTMs promotes a fuller understanding of these individuals as persons in their own right.  … (lisätietoja)

Book of academic essays by a trans man researcher; a queer studies book, putting trans men in the context of queer studies, feminism, theories of gender etc

Librarian's Review: I didn’t like this book. It’s very theoretical, and has nothing to do with my life at all. If you like reading academia, then Cromwell probably has a valuable perspective as an academic who is also trans. But even as academia, we have better books in the library. ( )

Capsule review: Do NOT make this your first book about gender issues as they apply to transpeople.

In more depth: This book is old. I'm sure that its basic message (listen to the subjects) was very helpful in initiating some of the changes that have occurred in transgendered treatment protocols. However, it makes for very bad reading now.

Much of the book is a literature review with a critique. While it's nice that he collected all this data, his presentation is terrible. The books aren't introduced well. Based on what he said about books I'd actual read, I have to assume that he missed major parts of writers' arguments and chose only to argue with points that he disagreed with.

In addition, he gives no quarter to the historical context of a book or the predominant theories of gender and sexuality that prevailed at the time of its writing. If a book doesn't speak his language, it is wrong.

Finally, the author completely misunderstands how performativity informs current (at his writing) post-modern theories of gender. I think that post-modernism is limited in understanding gender, but you have to understand it to be able to critique it properly.Cromwell merely comes off as partisan and badly informed. Considering that many of his own arguments rely on post-modernism at their core, he is standing on very shaky ground. ( )
