Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is rare to see a volume that does justice to the diversity of approaches to the psychology of gender. The Psychology of Gender, Second Edition, encompasses biological, psychological, sociological, and cultural approaches to central issues in a rapidly developing field, showcasing the increasing maturity of theory and research. From the discussion of biological influences in gender as fluid and dynamic, to the enhanced coverage of the subtle influences of power and status on gender differences and similarities, the volume will challenge students' preconceptions and open their eyes to the ways in which gender structures our social world."--Peter Glick, PhD, Department of Psychology, Lawrence University

"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
 
"I use The Psychology of Gender as a recommended text in 'Clinical Practice with Women,' an advanced graduate clinical social work class. This book provides a research-based scientific and theoretical overview of the role of gender--psychologically, physiologically, socially, and culturally--and I find it a helpful framework for our students."--Shoshana Ringel, MSW, PhD, School of Social Work, University of Maryland, Baltimore

I purchased this book as a required text for the University of Kentucky doctoral program but would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in studying male/female differences and similarities.

Anne E. Beall & Robert J. Sternberg, editors
The Psychology of Gender

(New York: Gilford Press, 1993) 278 pages

A collection of articles by about 10 psychologists
exploring the differences between men and women.
They all agree that there are such differences
in the roles men and women play in society,
and they are mostly dissatisfied with the inequality,
but they do not offer any new suggestions for overcoming such differences.
The book summarizes academic research completed by the early 1990s.
This reviewer hopes for more insightful books in the future,
especially with concrete suggestions for correcting the problems.

Perhaps the new edition, where this review appears,
has offered some constructive suggestions.

This book arrived in perfect condition. My complaint and reason for 4 stars is the size of the book. I am using as a text for current psychology course and would like to receive this in a binder form so that the pages can be laid open and handled easily.

Format: Hardcover
When I received this book the spine was all bent up, the dust jacket was torn and tattered, and the book itself was missing pages. If I wasn't in such a time crunch for school I would have sent it back.
