Gender Through the Prism of Difference

Gender Through the Prism of Difference Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gender Through the Prism of Difference adopts a global, transnational perspective on how race, class, and sexual diversity are central to the study of sex and gender. In contrast with other books in this area--which tend to focus on U.S. or European viewpoints--this wide-ranging anthology features many articles based on research done elsewhere throughout the world.

Now in its fourth edition, the book opens with a revised and updated introduction that sets the stage for understanding gender as a socially constructed experience. Featuring twenty-three new readings, this edition covers such timely subjects as the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, female Palestinian suicide bombers, transgendered people, intersex issues, fatherhood and masculinity, sex and immigrant communities, ageism and feminism, Sex and the City, and much more. It also addresses a number of other compelling topics, including the effects of globalization on notions of masculinity, the difficulties faced by Muslim women living in post-9/11 America, and perceptions of "blackness" worldwide.

Guiding students through the complex realities of today's gender relationships, Gender Through the Prism of Difference, Fourth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate or graduate courses in the sociology of gender; women's studies; gender roles; the sociology of women; women in society; race, class, and gender; feminist theory; and social inequality.
