Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Written by the leading gender communication scholar, Julia Wood's text introduces students to theories, research, and pragmatic information that demonstrate the multiple and often interactive ways in which our views of masculinity and femininity are shaped within contemporary culture. With the most up-to-date research, balanced perspectives of masculinity and femininity, a personal introduction to the field, and a conversational first-person writing style, GENDERED LIVES provides students with an engaging text that encourages them to think critically about gender and our society.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook synthesizes the literature on the ways that communication, gender, and culture influence each other in American society. Written at a level accessible to an intermediate-level undergraduate audience, the text offers chapters introducing basic concepts and theoretical approaches; the rhetorical shaping of women's and men's movements; gendered verbal and nonverbal communication; gender, communication, and development; gendered communication in organizations and the media; and gendered power and violence. The chapter on education has been entirely rewritten for the new edition, while the rest of the material has been updated to account for the development of the literature.
