Introduction : male, female or in-between? Towards a history of the science of 'hermaphroditism' in Spain, 1850-1960 -- From sex as social status to biological sex -- Between diagnoses : hermaphroditism, hypospadias and pseudo-hermaphroditism, 1870-1905 -- Gonads, hormones and Maranon's theory of intersexuality, 1905-1930 -- From true sex to sex as simulacrum.
This is the first book in English to analyse the medical category of 'hermaphroditism' in Spain over the period 1850-1960. It attempts to show how the relationship between the male and female body, biological 'sex', gender and sexuality constantly changed in the light of emerging medical, legal and social influences.
