From the Back Cover:

Featuring extensive revisions and updates, the new Second Editionof The Sociology of Gender presents an introductory overviewof gender theory and research, and continues to offer a unique andcompelling approach to one of the most important topics in thefield of sociology. Drawing from recent and ongoing research in thefield, gender scholar Amy Wharton develops and expands upontheoretical approaches to gender from her acclaimed first edition.These approaches emphasize how gender can be viewed throughdifferent "lenses," and how each one generates a particular way ofthinking about gender and its role in social life.

Wharton shows how individualist approaches view gender as partof the person; interactional approaches focus on the ways thatgender emerges through social interaction; and institutional viewsemphasize how gender is built into organizations, socialstructures, and institutional arrangements. The book deftlysummarizes and examines these three frameworks to facilitate anunderstanding of gender's contested meanings and vast areas ofresearch. Also addressed is the importance of analyzing gender inrelation to other kinds of distinctions, such as those based onrace, social class, or sexual orientation. The newest researchfindings by key scholars are also discussed, and the inclusion ofcross-national studies allow for comparative analysis of differentareas of study. The Sociology of Gender: An Introduction toTheory and Research, Second Edition, offers the mostup-to-date and accessible overview of this prominent subfield ofsociological enquiry available today.
