This is a substantially revised and refocused third edition of a best-selling and highly regarded textbook. Carefully designed to reflect both classic and new developments in the popular and lively fields of gender and women's studies, its breadth and depth make it suitable for students taking courses for the first time at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. Its new design and structure both highlight the connections across different areas of debate and maximize the book's accessibility as an indispensable source book for study.
