Overview

How important are biological factors, such as hormones, in shaping sexual destinies? This book brings a social developmental, as well as a biological and clinical psychological, perspective to bear on the factors that shape development as male or female, and that cause individuals within each sex to differ from one another in sex-related behaviors. Topics covered include sexual orientation, childhood play, spatial, mathematical and verbal abilities, nuturance, aggression, dominance, handedness, brain structure, and gender identity.

This original and accessible book is of interest to psychologists, neuroscientists, pediatricians, and educators, as well as the general public. It is also used in graduate and undergraduate courses on the psychology of gender and on hormones and behavior.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
". . . The book has many pluses. It is clearly written, preserving important and nuanced research findings in a style that can be appreciated by both the established investigator and lay person . . . This timely piece of work cuts through the well-described 'cognitive schemas' of many researchers and theorists in the fields of sex and gender differences and brings these areas of inquiry up to more modern realities..." —JAMA

"[This book] serves as an excellent text for senior undergrad or graduate level courses on this topic." JINS

". . . a remarkable book, a wonderful resource that belongs on one's bookshelf for frequent reference to the many times gender, sex, and brain questions come to mind . . . well written, easy to read . . . Tucked within the pages of this fascinating book are intriguing observations . . . The author has done an excellent job of getting us to think about some of the most fundamental questions in the science of reproduction." —The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

"Brain Gender is a fascinating book, clearly written and well organized...The most satisfying aspect of Hines' work is her emphasis on the many ways in which sex and gender research can go wrong and her insistence on recognizing the complexity of the subject...Her book is well worth reading."—Psychiatric Services

"Brain Gender contains much thoughtful and measured information in a readable and interesting manner...This book will make a much-needed contribution to the fields of psychology as well as gender studies."—Feminism and Psychology
