From the Publisher"Global Gender Research offers an extraordinary and wide-ranging collection of feminist sociological inquiries around the world. A great choice for undergraduate classrooms and a useful reference for any feminist academic."
–Rhacel Parreñas, American Civilization, Brown University
"Bose and Kim have skillfully woven together a collection of essays of breathtaking scope to provide an overview of contemporary cutting edge gender research in the social sciences from around the globe. The volume is certain to be of interest to a wide range of social scientists, women’s rights activists, students, and others engaged with women’s rights concerns."
—Aili Mari Tripp, Political Science and Gender & Women's Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"This excellent edited collection captures the vibrancy and range of contemporary gender research by foregrounding the diversity of women’s lives, the complexity of gendered struggles, and collective accomplishments of women activists fighting for social, economic, and political justice in very different contexts."
—Nancy A. Naples, Sociology and Women’s Studies, University of Connecticut
"...the resulting complexity provides richness and depth that many other books on research and gender studies lack. ...The editors hoped to produce a volume that would 'help transform the social science disciplines and women's studies by truly bringing international native/indigenous gender scholarship to the United States, as well as other countries' (p. xiii). There is doubt that their goal has been met in this book's comprehensive and unique examination of social science research and its relation to women's and gender studies on a global level."
