This is a comprehensive introduction to sex and gender theories, research, and issues, focusing on social psychological and feminist perspectives. The book examines the similarities and differences between women and men, discusses where that knowledge comes from, and explains how that knowledge may itself be shaped and limited by cultural perceptions. This new edition has been thoroughly revised with up-to-date research citations for all chapters and more current examples.

2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely anti-male May 3, 2009
By Calhara
Like others, I was told this was perhaps the most unbiased book on the market for psychology of gender. It very well might be, but don't let such an endorsement fool you: the book is extremely anti-male, presenting males in a poor light whenever feasible. The book clearly focuses on debunking popular anti-woman stereotypes and urban myths, but does so with an equally clear offensive mindset towards men. Use of citation is interesting to note, as others have pointed out: several sections proclaim statistical information without a citation, and many of inferences she presents as fact are really from singular studies with questionable methodologies. A large number of the studies she cites as having important results and subsequently draws strong conclusions from have actually never been replicated; while she does have the scientific integrity to present some of the conflicting research, the reader is lead to believe that only one study has had conflicting results, when many times this is not the case.

Perhaps the thing that bothered me the most is her systematic manipulation of factual statistics. For example, when comparing male-female athletic performance, rather than citing current data she looks back to find instances where the current world records have over-taken athletes from decades past. Rather than citing research that actually compares men and women, she presents studies on all-female groups as a valid basis to make comparisons (in other words, we get tallies of female performance but not of male, yet the reader is told this indicates similarities between male and female performance).
