The battle between the sexes has raged on for centuries; however, are men and women really from different planets? In The Gendered Society Reader, Fifth Edition, coeditors Michael Kimmel and Amy Aronson pull together an array of dynamic voices--both male and female, classic and contemporary--to examine various interpretations of gender. These lively, in-depth readings explore gender discourse over a wide range of disciplines, focusing primarily on two central issues: difference and domination. Carefully balanced to reflect the diversity of its subject, this text addresses provocative and fundamental questions including:
* How are males and females different?
* What do these differences mean?
* How do various cultures and religions interpret gender?
* Why do societies continue to differentiate people on the basis of gender?
* Why is it that almost every known society is based on male domination?
Michael Kimmel's textbook, The Gendered Society, Fifth Edition (OUP, 2013), provides a perfect complement for classroom use.
