Offering a clear, comprehensive presentation, HALF THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, 8E delivers an authoritative analysis of classical and the most current research from a feminist psychology viewpoint. It thoroughly examines the balance of cultural and biological similarities--and differences--between the genders, noting how these characteristics may affect issues of equality as well as how men and women behave toward one another. It provides a strong foundation for understanding the influences of gender, race, and ethnicity on psychology and society, as well as strategies for thinking critically about pop culture versus academic feminism as it relates to psychology.

Review:

With clear, comprehensive, and cutting-edge coverage, HALF THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, 8E, International Edition delivers an authoritative analysis of classical and up-to-the-minute research from a feminist psychology viewpoint. It thoroughly examines the balance of cultural and biological similarities (and differences) between the genders, noting how these characteristics may affect issues of equality as well as how men and women behave toward one another. Reflecting the latest developments from the field, the text puts research into context and clearly explains the relationship between gender and emotion-helping to demystify the scientific process and study of feminist psychology. It includes expansive ethnicity coverage, hands-on applications, and case studies that give students further experience with key issues. This proven text equips students with a strong foundation for understanding the influences of gender, race, and ethnicity on psychology and society, as well as strategies for thinking critically about pop culture versus academic feminism as it relates to psychology.
