Uncertain Terms: Negotiating Gender in American Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume takes up the challenge of such questions, central to understanding gender in the United States. Taken together, the articles in this collection articulate and combine two senses of 'negotiating gender.'

Synopsis:
