From the Publisher"Adopting a book like Ferrante is a clear indication that our department is serious about making our general education courses international and comparative. I particularly like the way each chapter focuses on a country. In this way Ferrante is able to go beyond merely mentioning other countries and give students all sorts of current events and historical materials in addition to the sociological perspective."
"One of the reasons I love this text is because it is so unbiased. Overall, she does an excellent job of being unbiased, and presenting students with several viewpoints. She does have student voices in her text—it works!"
"I like her style of talking with students and then researching their discussions. When she writes about what students have told her, this is encouraging to students because they see that their voice is valid. I use this effectively as I encourage my students to share their own ideas with the class and me"
"The examples are provided from both male and female perspectives, which make the book more relevant for understanding women's issues and problems of racial and ethnic inequalities in the world. I support this effort wholeheartedly"
"I like Ferrante's inclusion of student voices and periodically I use these items to initiate discourse among my own students"
