From the Back Cover:

Gender: Psychological Perspectives examines the behavior, biology, and social context in which both women and men function.  Research and scholarship form the basis of this book, providing the material for a critical review and an overall picture of gender from a psychological perspective. To accent the relevance of research findings in vivid detail, Brannon supplements the review of scholarly research with personal, narrative accounts of gender-relevant aspects of people’s lives. Brannon also highlights the cross-cultural perspective of gender by including a section on diversity in each chapter, as well as weaving diversity issues throughout the text.

 

Highlights of the Fifth Edition

  • Includes more coverage of men and men’s issues, striving for a better balance of women’s and men’s issues.
  • New chapter organization moves the discussion of gender stereotypes to the third chapter to allow it to act as a framework for the book.  Examination of implicit stereotyping also has been added.

  • Includes more research on ethnicity and cross-cultural issues, both in the “Considering Diversity” sections and throughout the chapters.
Includes several studies on brain imaging, some that reveal gender differences and others that fail to do so.
