"Should you make room in your financial and time budgets to buy and read yet another volume of expanded, revised conference papers? In the case of Sex and Gender Hierarchies, the answer is a resounding yes if your research or teaching interests include sex differences and gender relationships in primates. This collection of 17 chapters drawn from the four subfields of anthropology, accomplishes what many such volumes only promise to do. It is an impressive analysis of a specific issue--systematic relationships of inequality based on sex and gender--from the perspectives of first-rate biological and social/cultural anthropologists, archaeologists, and linguists." Barbara J. King, International Journal of Primatology
A generation of feminist research has explored the extent to which the roles of women and men vary across cultures. This volume broadens the conventional field of comparison to document diversity in sex and gender hierarchies among human and nonhuman primates.
