Canada in the twenty-first century is rapidly evolving with respect to sexuality and  relationships. Human Sexuality in a World of Diversity, 6ce embraces and affirms sexual diversity. It is this approach, adopted throughout every chapter, that makes this resource unique. The sixth Canadian edition builds upon the strong themes for which previous editions have become known and are woven throughout the text: 1) human diversity; 2) an inclusive approach to sexuality; 3 critical thinking; 4) responsible sexual decision making and 5) sexual health.

This new 6th edition has been updated extensively with new Canadian materials and references in each chapter. In addition to integrating up-to-date Canadian research and statistics, we’ve addressed key issues in human sexuality within the uniquely Canadian context. A number of new Innovative Canadian Research boxes featuring the work of leading Canadian researchers in the field of human sexuality have been added, and others have been updated.

Personalize Learning with Revel

We are excited in the 6th Canadian edition to leverage Revel, an interactive eText  platform that replaces the traditional text with an engaging learning experience that prepares students for class. Revel presents an affordable, seamless blend of author-created digital text, media, and assessment based on learning science. With Revel, students are able to read, practice, and study in one continuous  experience - anytime, anywhere, on any device, both online and offline.

Our intention in using Revel is to bring Sociological concepts to life. To this end, the Canadian edition has been updated to include not only new topic areas, but also new interactive techniques for engaging student attention and facilitating learning.
