From the Publisher

From the Back Cover

This clearly written book introduces readers to both the discipline of sociology and to the specific area of gender roles at the same time. Focusing on the most recent research, both in the U.S. and globally, it provides an in-depth, multidisciplinary survey of both modern gender roles and issues. This book explains basic sociological concepts and theories. By providing a global/cross-cultural focus, it shows how gender issues are global issues which impact people at ALL levels. Emphasizes multicultural diversity in the U.S., highlighting the latest research linking gender to race, class, and age with a focus on mid-life and older women. Integrates insights from other disciplines- e.g., biology, psychology, and history- as they have influenced thinking on gender roles and the creation of beliefs about women and men, masculinity and femininity. Features a chapter on women, work, and the workplace. For people interested in sociology and women's issues.

Format: Paperback
Yes, lets get serious. This textbook provides a serious, in-depth look at male-female relations. I am a university professor in California, and I have successfully used this book in my classes. The book is not perfect, but its major fault is the lack of a new edition.

Format: Paperback
Excellent work: deep, serious, penetrating. People should make comments on the book without having read it. Not an easy read. It is a serious work and requires time and patience (and some familiarity with sociological ideas and concepts). Two negative, pre-mature, anti-intellectual reviews should be removed immediately. This is not a political polemic or grocery store paperback. You have got to read the book and it will take time to digest the arguments.

The book is very clean and hardly used. The earlier edition does not seem to have much difference from the newer version, but it's still a good idea to cross reference the books if you can (from library's book reserves). Otherwise, very happy that it came on time.

Perhaps another person with a chip in their shoulder, hiding behind academic credentials.

Example: ch4 Dr. Lindsey spouts such gems as...

"It would be insulting for grown men to be called boys but we routinely refer to grown women as girls. College students take for granted the "guys-girls" distinction so that males do not have to be referred to as "boys." In this manner, linguistic practice routinely implies that females are immature, helpless, and incapable. Males are complete beings who readily take on adult qualities and females are sexual childlike objects who linguistically retain an immature status through-out their lives." **How about this one?.....

"A poet becomes a poetess and an usher an usherette. Again, women are defined as a kind of male appendage that are the exceptions to the male-as-norm rule- imitators not to be taken seriously." Get real!
