Overview

Examining the elusive, evolving construct of gender in a unique text/ reader format

An accessible, timely, and stimulating introduction to the sociology of gender, The Kaleidoscope of Gender: Prisms, Patterns, and Possibilities, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive analysis of key ideas, theories, and applications in this field as viewed through the metaphor of a kaleidoscope. This collection of creative articles by top scholars explains how the complex, evolving pattern of gender is constructed interpersonally, institutionally, and culturally and challenges students to question how gender shapes their daily lives. Like the prior edition, the Second Edition maintains a focus on contemporary contributions to the field while incorporating classical and theoretical arguments to provide a broad framework. Integrating a cross-cultural focus and intersectional inquiry, this unique text/reader vividly illustrates that gender is a malleable continuum of prisms, patterns, and possibilities.

New to the Second Edition

· 27 new readings, including interdisciplinary research articles as well as articles from the popular media, complement the 23 readings retained from the prior edition
· Updated extensive introductions to each chapter provide a helpful framework for the readings to follow and include the most recent statistics, new concepts, and references
· Increased emphasis on readings about social movements for equality (Chapter 10), a sharper focus on work (7), and new readings on domestic violence such as an article on rape on college campuses (8)
· An even greater emphasis onintersectional analysis and a deeper understanding of masculinities
