The fourth edition of this classic, comprehensive and best-selling text on gender and women's studies marks over twenty years of engaging with the key issues and developments in gender and feminist theory. With fully revised chapters written by specialists across a range of core topics, including sexuality, work, the media, race, education, family, bodies, masculinity, methodologies, social movements and politics, this accessible but academically rigorous collection breaks down contemporary debates with helpful examples and questions, whilst also underlining the complexities and contradictions of this area of study.

In particular, this new edition:

· continues to reflect the shift from 'women's studies' to 'gender studies', incorporating masculinity studies throughout;
· features new chapters on violence and the environment, reflecting continuing and more recent feminist concerns;
· includes expanded discussion of intersectionality, international and transnational issues.

Coinciding with an upsurge in new forms of feminist politics, this timely publication confirms the continuing relevance of gender and women's studies. It remains an indispensable resource for students, academics and anyone interested in this lively field.

Review:

'This 4th edition contains some of the best writing and research I have ever seen on gender and women's studies. As always, Robinson and Richardson have brought together a set of authors of exceptionally high quality. A brilliant volume! Bravissima!' - Kum-Kum Bhavnani, Professor, Sociology, University of California Santa Barbara, USA 'This accessible and richly informed volume provides a lucid outline of the variety of writing in gender and women's studies, as well as suggesting possible issues for further debate and discussion.' - Mary Evans, Centennial Professor, Gender Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK 'One of the first things that struck me when reading Introducing Gender and Women's Studies was how much important material they have been able to cover, whilst making the text accessible and easy to follow, providing a wellrounded and thought-provoking discussion of key issues within the field.' - Charlotte Dann, University of Northampton, UK
