9780199349432: The Sociology of Gender: A Brief Introduction

An ideal "essentials" text for introductory courses, The Sociology of Gender, Fourth Edition, provides a concise--yet also in-depth--overview of basic sociological concepts and perspectives on gender. Focusing primarily on the contemporary U.S., Laura Kramer and new coauthor Ann Beutel integrate history, theory, and research in order to examine the current gender system and the ways in which macro-, middle-, and micro-level societal forces have changed that system over time. In addition, this book's explicitly sociological approach provides an alternative to--and critiques of--prevailing biological and psychological approaches to gender and sexual orientation.

Review:


"The writing style of The Sociology of Gender is accessible to college students, and it is very comprehensive, especially for a text intended to be a brief introduction."--Kristyan Kouri, California State University, Northridge


"The authors do an excellent job of explaining the sociological approach, including how it differs from both commonsense assumptions and other disciplinary approaches."--Sarah Winslow, Clemson University


"One of the main strengths of this text is its comprehensive yet brief coverage of a very complex subject. It does an excellent job of including both women and men in the discussion, and the incorporation of race, ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation in each chapter is a significant strength."--Lyn Huxford, McKendree College
