Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Explores how culturally constructed gender influences interactions between people at the various stages of intimate romantic, sexual, and friendship relationships. From the perspective of psychology, discusses how society molds gendered relationships, how non-traditional relationships can strengthen or dispense with gender-linked behavior, and the role of gender in conflict and violence. For academics in a wide range of fields and for interested lay readers. Paper edition (unseen), $17.95.

Synopsis:

Gender and Close Relationships deals wirh gender and its possible effects on aims and behaviour in close relationships: dating, romantic and sexual partnerships, marriage and friendship. The authors warn their readers that they should bot be looking at why there are gender differences, but at whether, when and under what conditions. The book starts with the explanatory concepts that have been found useful in considering these questions. The authors suggest two dimensions of explanations for gender differences: one dimension involves structural (social roles and expectations) versus individual (traits, needs etc.) explanations. The other dimension distinguishes between socialisation and biological explanations.... This is not just a

Synopsis:

Born into a gendered world, gender affects virtually all of our close relationships. How we interact with one another during each stage of a relationship is influenced by the volatile and sometimes divisive role that gender plays in our lives. Gender and Close Relationships is an exploration into the current world of gendered interaction and the ways in which gender influences how others perceive and treat us. This timely and comprehensive discussion demonstrates, clearly, how societies construct and create gendered relationships, but also suggests how non-traditional close relationships may strengthen, or make irrelevant, gender-linked behavior. While framed within a solid scholarship, the authorsAE presentation style is accessible, engaging, and practical. This book is ideal for students as well as academics, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of psychology, gender studies, interpersonal communication, and family studies. Gender and Close Relationships will also provide the interested lay reader with a deeper understanding of how being gender-identified may influence the quality, quantity, and content of our relationships.
