Thinking About Women: Sociological Perspectives on Sex and Gender, 8/E Margaret Andersen ISBN-10: 0205578721 This text is a comprehensive review of feminist scholarship in the social sciences; it shows how gender operates in every aspect of society, and how the experiences of both men and women are created through social institutions. Thinking About Women is interdisciplinary in its coverage, yet grounded in sociological theory and research. Also, it integrates discussions of race, class, and sexuality to show how gender is not experienced in isolation. As with every edition, the text is thoroughly updated. The list below highlights some of the new features. Every new chapter (except Chapter 1) now includes three new boxed features. These features highlight key themes of the text: research, the media, and studies about men. The boxes are: A Focus on Research, in which a new empirical research study, appropriate to the chapter subject, is described. Example (Chapter 6): a discussion of opting out that is, are well-educated, middle-class women dropping out of the labor market to raise children?The media claim this is a strong trend, but is it? This box feature examines new sociological research on this topic. Media Matters, in which an empirical study examining some aspect of the media related to the chapter topic is presented. Example (Chapter 9): a box featuring new research on violent images of rape on the Internet. This box also shows how Asian women are overrepresented in pornographic web sites. What About Men?, a box which features research examining some aspect of men s lives that is related to the chapter topic. Example (Chapter 4): a box describing the peer socialization of young boys in which homophobic insults reinforce social norms of masculinity For a full list of changes, please visit www.pearsonhighered.comAndersen, Margaret L. is the author of 'Thinking about Women: Sociological Perspectives on Sex and Gender', published 2008 under ISBN 9780205578726 and ISBN 0205578721.
