S/he: Changing Sex and Changing Clothes. Oxford: Bloomsbury/Berg, 1998.

Highlighting how the gender identity of transsexuals relates to hormonal and surgical changes in the body as well as to changes in dress, the book investigates the pressures and motivations to conform to expected gender roles, and the ways in which these are affected by social, educational, and professional status. Differences in the experiences of those who change from male to female and female to male are also examined.
