Book Description:

The twentieth century gave rise to profound changes in traditional sex roles. Rising Tide sets out to understand how modernization has changed cultural attitudes towards gender equality and to analyze the political consequences of this process. This book is the first to systematically compare attitudes towards gender equality worldwide, comparing almost 70 nations that run the gamut from rich to poor, agrarian to postindustrial. Rising Tide is essential reading for those interested in understanding issues of comparative politics, public opinion, political behavior, political development, and political sociology.

Review:

"...an invaluable and comprehensive resource with which to assess the causes and significance of gender-related attitudinal change from a comparative perspective."
-Political Science Quarterly

"This is the book that I have been waiting for in comparative gender politics. It advances new theory, tests that theory with the best available data, and raises enough additional questions to inspire a generation of graduate students."
-Professor W. Clyde Wilcox, Georgetown University

"This book, by two skilled and prolific political scientists, will be widely read by scholars and students interested in gender politics, political culture, political change and modernization, and comparative public opinion and political participation."
-Virginia Sapiro, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"Rising Tide brings an impressive wealth of evidence to bear on a broad range of timely political debates involving gender equality. It traces the uneven advance of gender equality across states and then offers compelling arguments about both the causes and the consequences of this advance. In so doing, it enlightens us not only about gender but about religion, modernization, voting, and cultural change. Rising Tide is a rare combination of depth and breadth, put together with clarity and skill."
-Nancy Bermeo, Princeton University

"Inglehart and Norris provide an excellent example of a tightly focused, carefully developed, theoretically and empirically rich examination of what might arguably be called the most significant change in human development... Highly recommended."
-Choice

"Rising Tide is an accessible book in comparative gender politics, providing a rich source of data and data analysis on gender equality in almost seventy countries."
-Irene van Staveren, Institute of Social Studies, Feminist Economics

"Two leading political scientists have given us a clear, systematic, and powerfully documented book on gender equality...The result is a clear, coherent statement and rich detailed results. It stands as a baseline against which other interpretations may be compared...This work could become a classic."
-Terry Nichols Clark, University of Chicago, American Journal of Sociology

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The twentieth century gave rise to profound changes in traditional sex roles. However, the force of this rising tide has varied among rich and poor societies around the globe, as well as among younger and older generations. Rising Tide sets out to understand how modernization has changed cultural attitudes towards gender equality and to analyze the political consequences of this process. The core argument suggests that women and men s lives have been altered in a two-stage modernization process consisting of (i) the shift from agrarian to industrialized societies and (ii) the move from industrial towards post industrial societies. This book is the first to systematically compare attitudes towards gender equality worldwide, comparing almost 70 nations that run the gamut from rich to poor, agrarian to postindustrial. Rising Tide is essential reading for those interested in understanding issues of comparative politics, public opinion, political behavior, political development, and political sociology.
