Dr. William Yarber from the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington has recently returned from Taiwan where his widely-used textbook, Human Sexuality: Diversity in Contemporary Society, was prominently featured at the 2019 Taipei International Book Exhibition. During the book exhibition, Dr. Yarber presented forums on human sexuality. His textbook continues to receive worldwide acclaim from professors and publishers and is now being published in Taiwan, China, and South Korea.
“The minute I finished the translated edition of Human Sexuality: Diversity in Contemporary Society, my first reaction was understandable, ‘Hooray, yes, yes, yes, our wait is finally over’. It’s the first textbook that takes a positive approach toward sex and is rich in accessible content,” said Professor Cheng Ling-Fang from the Graduate Institute of Gender Studies of Kaohsiung Medical University.
In addition to being a Provost Professor at the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington, Dr. Yarber is the Senior Director of the Rural Center for AIDS/STD Prevention and the Senior Scientist at the Kinsey Institute. The textbook is co-authored by Barbara Sayad, a recently retired professor at California State University Monterey Bay.
