According to Amazon, this is scheduled for release in the U.S. on November 12. I'm looking forward to reading this. Marketing blurb:

In an age when falsehoods are commonly taken as truth, Janice Raymond’s new book illuminates the “doublethink” of a transgender movement that is able to define men as women, women as men, he as she, dissent as heresy, science as sham, and critics as fascists. Meanwhile, trans mobs are treated as gender patriots whose main enemy is feminists and their dissent from gender orthodoxies. The medicalization of gender dissatisfaction depicted by Raymond in her early visionary book, The Transsexual Empire, has today expanded exponentially into the transgender industrial complex built on big medicine, big pharma, big banks, big foundations, big research centers, some attached to big universities. And the current rise of treating young children with puberty blockers and hormones is a widespread scandal that has been named a medical experiment on children. Whereas transsexualism was mainly a male phenomenon in the past with males undertaking cross sex hormones and surgery, today it is notably young women who are self-declaring as men in large numbers. The good news is that these young women who formerly identified as “trans men” or gender non-binary, are now de-transitioning. In this book, they speak movingly about their severances from themselves and other women, their escape from compulsive femininity, their sexual assaults, the misogyny they experienced growing up, and their journeys in recovering their womanhood. Doublethink: A Feminist Challenge to Transgenderism makes us aware of the consequences of a runaway ideology and its costs — among them what is at stake when males are allowed to compete in female sports and when parents are not aware of school curricula that confuse sex with gender and that can facilitate a child’ s hormone treatments without parental consent.

Just tried to pre-order this on Amazon and it said “not deliverable to this address”, something I’ve never come across before. Is this banned in some jurisdictions? Or?

That happens to me if I try to ship something to an Amazon locker and I have to change the delivery address to my home.

I have seen the book for sale on other websites, such as https://bookshop.org/ and https://blackwells.co.uk/bookshop/home/

Or try ordering directly from the publisher: https://www.spinifexpress.com.au/shop/p/9781925950380?rq=doublethink

Thank you. I’ll try those. I need to wean myself off Amazon anyway.

Great! I’ve been meaning to read her original book on the topic from 1980 but it’s hard to get hold of one at a reasonable price and also of course wouldn’t take into account the developments since then.

Definitely going to read this, and if it’s good then will be sharing it widely.

I can't wait to read this but I may have to buy it digitally and read from my phone or borrow it digitally as I could see someone in my irl life getting triggered by me reading a book they view as possibly negative.

Really looking forward to this! But am going to finish The Transsexual Empire first. Read A Passion for Friends earlier this year and absolutely loved it.
