9780130104281: Gender Roles: A Sociological Perspective (4th Edition)

The 4th edition of Gender Roles provides the best balance between “gender” and “women” as a focus—especially with the expanded content on men and masculinity. It addresses religion and integrates history at various points. An objective of the book is to dispel myths about gender. Both sociological and interdisciplinary content organized around clear and appropriate research serves this objective well—providing readers with a sociological perspective of gender that can be meaningfully applied to their daily lives. The more controversial topics related to gender have a greater array of supporting references directing readers to explore the topics further. Gender Roles integrates insights and research from other disciplines—especially biology, psychology, anthropology, and history. Interdisciplinary material is organized, presented, and guided by the sociological perspective, however, so readers can understand the commonalities and differences in the ways the various disciplines research and explain gender. An exciting and interesting read for anyone interested in gender roles and sexual identity.
