What is the relationship between intelligence and sex? In recent decades, studies of the controversial histories of both intelligence testing and of human sexuality in the United States have been increasingly common—and hotly debated. But rarely have the intersections of these histories been examined. In Gentlemen’s Disagreement, Peter Hegarty enters this historical debate by recalling the debate between Lewis Terman—the intellect who championed the testing of intelligence— and pioneering sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, and shows how intelligence and sexuality have interacted in American psychology. Through a fluent discussion of intellectually gifted onanists, unhappily married men, queer geniuses, lonely frontiersmen, religious ascetics, and the two scholars themselves, Hegarty traces the origins of Terman’s complaints about Kinsey’s work to show how the intelligence testing movement was much more concerned with sexuality than we might remember. And, drawing on Foucault, Hegarty reconciles these legendary figures by showing how intelligence and sexuality in early American psychology and sexology were intertwined then and remain so to this day.

Is chivalry close to being extinct? Author Roger Smith thinks so. And The Gentlemen's Guide: A Quick Reference is the solution!In defining "gentleman", Smith does not cater to the definition of a tuxedo-wearing, Ferrari-driving, multilingual man ala James Bond. Instead, he believes a gentleman is defined in terms of behavior that is courteous, mannerly, and poised. Smith believes the average man can easily increase his manners by making simple changes. Excellent manners and thoughtfulness have virtually disappeared in our current culture. But it doesn't take much for a man to restore himself to the good graces of his significant other!Among the suggestions Smith has compiled to help men improve their relationships with wives or girlfriends are the following: Hold her-that's one thing your arms are for Make her lunch-she may not like a sardine and guacamole sandwich, but it's the thought that counts! Walk with her-remember it's together time, not a race! Kiss her-do not burp before or after Take this opportunity to find the gentleman inside-your other half will thank you for it!

As far back as the first century BCE, Chinese dynastic historians -- all men -- began recording the achievements of Chinese women and creating a structure of understanding that would be used to limit and control them. This collection is an enlightening source for studying Chinese women of the imperial era as well as for understanding Chinese womanhood in general. By contextualizing these biographies, the author shows us these women not just as the complaisant, calm-eyed, delicate figures that adorn Confucian texts, but also as the products of the Confucian tradition's appropriation of women.
