Editorial Reviews

Review

"For many years now Bob Connell has been the most original male writer venturing into the difficult terrain of gender relations. His writing is lucid, scholarly and inspiring; indispensable for anyone trying to understand and challenge existing power relations between men and women."—Lynne Segal

From the Back Cover

This book is an important introductory textbook on sexual politics and an original contribution to the reformulation of social and political theory. In a discussion of, among other issues, psychoanalysis, Marxism and feminist theories, the structure of gender relations, and working class feminism, Connell has produced a major work of synthesis and scholarship which will be of unique value to students and professionals in sociology, politics, women's studies and to anyone interested in the field of sexual politics. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The book is highly readable, but it is most impressive in its suggestiveness -- repeatedly Connell identifies new avenues, new ways of looking at old issues, new discourses. There is nothing of the old repetitive pseudo-Jungian talk, and his explorations of new paths of males are very perceptive. After reading this book, the reader THINKS.
