Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text introduces undergraduates to the ways in which gender images of masculinity and femininity affect communication and the way we live. It reviews theories and research on relationships among gender, culture, and communication, overviews the history of women's and men's movements in the US, and examines gendered verbal and nonverbal communication. Gendered communication is examined in the family, schools, close relationships, organizations, and the media. This fifth edition contains expanded material on gender in non- Western culture and technology in communication. Wood teaches humanities and communication studies at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"I really enjoy the way the book is structured. It is easy for the students to follow and understand and is updated on a regular enough basis so that the examples are relevant."

"The book provides a balanced review of the basic perspectives on gender and communication. The practical explanation of the research is excellent. The book provides a nice way to look at the practical application of how communication influences various aspects of students' lives."
