Part of the Longman Topics series, Issues of Gender explores how gender roles operate in and through work, sexuality, popular culture, family, and across global perspectives. This brief collection of non-fiction and fiction essays examines constructions of femininities and masculinities and foregrounds intersections of race, class, and sexual preference as both shaping and shaped by gender. The selections highlight various perspectives on complex issues such as gender and global perspectives, gender and popular culture, and gender and family. Divided into five chapters, each features six to eight essays of varying lengths. Brief apparatus encourages students to think critically about the ideas raised and challenges them to reconsider personal perspectives on gender issues in light of the readings. Longman Topics are brief attractive readers on a single complex, but compelling topic. Featuring about 30 full-length selections, these volumes are generally half the size and half the cost of standard composition readers.
