Read full description of the books The Transgender Studies Reader:This collection has incredible span from early (mostly) problematic depictions of transgender identity to contemporary academic articles. The inclusion of historical documents in addition to the academic articles included provides information about the historical response to transgender identities that are often overlooked.
The flaw I saw in this anthology is the limited number of transgender people of color contributing. I also hope the second Transgender Studies Reader devotes a larger portion of the text to the intersections of racial identity and gender identity.
The articles in this anthology that I found particularly interesting are listed below in order of appearance:
"Psychopathia Sexualis with Special Reference to Contrary Sexual Instinct" Richard von Kraft-Ebing
"A Cyborg Manifesto: Science Technology, and Socialist-Feminism in the Late Twentieth Century" Donna Haraway
"My Words to Victor Frankenstein Above the Village of Chamounix: Performing Transgender Rage" Susan Stryker
"Look! No, Don't! The Visibility Dilemma for Transsexual Men" Jamison Green
"Skinflick: Posthuman Gender in Jonathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs" Judith Halberstam
"Transgender Theory and Embodiment: The Risk of Racial Marginalization" Katrina Roen
"Romancing the Transgender Native: Rethinking the Use of the 'Third Gender' Concept" Evan B. Towle and Lynn M. Morgan
"Whose Feminism is it Anyway? The Unspoken Racism of the Trans Inclusion Debate" Emi Koyama
