Description: An ideal "essentials" text for introductory courses, The Sociology of Gender, Third Edition, provides a concise--yet also in-depth--overview of basic sociological concepts and perspectives on gender. Focusing primarily on the contemporary United States, author Laura Kramer integrates history, theory, and research in order to examine the current gender system and the ways in which macro-, middle-, and micro-level societal forces have changed that system over time. In addition, Kramer's explicitly sociological approach provides an alternative to--and critiques of--prevailing biological and psychological approaches to gender and sexual orientation. Featuring an exceptionally accessible and engaging writing style, The Sociology of Gender explores how race, ethnicity, and social class affect the meaning of gender. A chapter on culture provides a close look at traditionally dominant versions of femininities and masculinities and how they are communicated through language, mass media, and religion. The concepts of individual agency and resistance, introduced in the first chapter, resurface throughout in discussions of culture and socialization. The third edition provides increased coverage of such cutting-edge topics as men and masculinity, intersectionality, and the body and sexuality (including homosexuality). An updated Instructor's Manual and Test Bank is available to adopters. Enhanced by numerous real-world examples, a glossary, and evocative discussion questions, The Sociology of Gender, Third Edition, is an accessible and lively overview that is ideal for introductory sociology courses.
