"This stimulating, rich volume reflects the full array of gender theories, from hormones and evolution to socialization, social roles, identity, and culture. Classroom instructors, students of gender, and colleagues catching up on the latest research in this popular area will all find this second edition an invaluable, provocative resource."--Susan T. Fiske, PhD, Department of Psychology, Princeton University
"This second edition expands its scope beyond its original emphasis on biology, evolution, and socialization to embrace more fully the social context in which gender is enacted and perceived. Offering a comprehensive exploration of the psychology of gender, the volume promises to serve as a solid basic text for graduate studies as well as a resource for scholars in the field."--Jan Yoder, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Akron
