This engaging collection of readings presents a multifaceted view of contemporary gender relations. Using other inequalities such as race, class, and sexual orientation as a “prism of difference,” the readings present gender as it is situated in sexual, racial-ethnic, social class, physical abilities, age, and national citizenship contexts. In addition to articles about men, women, and sexual and immigrant diversity, this reader also includes works on gender and globalization. The editors introduce this wide-ranging collection with a provocative analytical introduction that sets the stage for students' understanding of gender as a socially constructed experience. More than any other gender reader, Gender through the Prism of Difference gives students a clear, current, understanding of gender in a broad social context.

Summary: "The approach ofGender Through the Prism of Differenceis great and distinguishes [it] from all other books on the market. I like that it's not about women, but about gender; that it examines gender by focusing on how a range of social inequalities and identities impact gender; and that it has a balance of readings that focus on the U.S., those that focus on transnational issues (such as migration) and those that focus on non-U.S. contexts. It's very appropriate for the upper-level undergraduate course that I use it for. Students each semester have commented about how much they like the book."--Janice McCabe,Florida State University "This book is very thorough and engaging. In my course, I try to emphasize both an intersectional approach to gender and issues of masculinity. . . . Both of these aspects are emphasized in this text. Additionally, I try to find readings that I think are engaging while also demonstrating how sociologists research gender. This text offers many readings that are based on actual research and cover interesting topics."--Elena Windsong,University of New Mexico. N° de réf. du libraire ABE_book_new_0199743029
