Overview

The third edition of the highly regarded Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary continues to offer an approach to the field that reinforces the alternative theoretical frameworks for considering the important legal issues of our time relating to gender. It reaches well beyond the traditional topics of employment, family, and the U.S. Constitution to show how subject matters as diverse as ethics, civil procedure, property law, immigration law and other areas of the law can have a significant gender dimension.

The authors make the subject meaningful and memorable through:

  • a balanced approach that emphasizes alternative, often competing, perspectives
  • a statutory appendix for more detail on commonly cited laws
  • effective use of introductory text, cases, cutting-edge feminist scholarship, and notes
  • problems that give students experience in applying theory to real-life situations
  • the integration of material on race, class, gender, and sexual orientation

Look for these important changes in the Third Edition of this fully revised casebook:

  • more international material, including human rights issues
  • new co-author Deborah L. Rhode joins an outstanding author team
  • greater emphasis on practical applications of theoretical material
  • increased coverage of marriage and motherhood
  • greater attention to women and poverty
  • new cases on First Amendment right of expression (Boy Scouts of America v. Dale), peer sexual harassment in public schools (Davis v. Monroe County), Violence Against Women Act (US v. Morrison), partial-birth abortion, and reproductive technology

For excellent coverage, and for a balanced, comprehensive layout of the field of Gender and Law that develops multiple approaches and perspectives, ranging from traditional formal equality analysis to more radical feminist critiques, you will want to consider Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, Third Edition, by Bartlett, Harris, and Rhode.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A law school textbook containing case law and commentary by feminist legal scholars. Compiled by Bartlett (Duke U. School of Law), Harris (U. of California at Berkeley School of Law), and Rhode (Stanford Law School), the text rejects the notion that women's issues can be separated from the general consideration of the implicit assumptions of legal thinking. While not ignoring women's issues such as rape, affirmative action, domestic violence, and job discrimination, the material prefers to look at the issues through theoretical windows related to legal subordination, formal equality, substantive equality, nonsubordination, autonomy, and anti-essentialism.
