"This carefully selected collection of classic and cutting-edge essays provides an excellent overview of gender politics in comparative perspective. An invaluable resource for classroom use, this volume will introduce students to some of the very best theoretical and empirical scholarship on women and politics."--Susan J. Carroll, Professor of Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies and Senior Scholar at the Center for American Women and Politics, Rutgers University

"A long-needed reader that covers the key themes in the scientific study of gender and politics. Teachers and students in classes all over the world will no doubt appreciate the temporal and regional variations in this rich selection of articles."--Drude Dahlerup, Professor of Political Science and Director of Women in Politics Research Centre, Stockholm University

Women, Gender, and Politics: A Reader is an unprecedented tool in reaching this understanding. From social movements to political parties to comparative analysis, Krook and Childs lead us effectively on this journey."--Victoria A.

Format: Paperback
For another perspective focused on the U.S. see Gender and Political Communication in AMerica: Rhetoric, Representation and Display. If you'll forgive the shameless self-promotion. It's not political science-oriented, but it will be of interest to most of those interested in this book complied by Krook and Childs.
