Synopses & Reviews
An exciting array of choices, or a litany of oppressive stereotypes? These personal ads---like so many gendered representations in the contemporary U.S.---offer us both. 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.'
"Engaged and insightful, this collection explores the dynamics of gender, class, and race in today's United States. Sophisticated theory, passionate concern, and vivid examples make this a landmark work of social criticism." --Renato Rosaldo
