Overview

"In this book, a leading scholar defines three different frameworks: the individual, the interactional, and the institutional. Individualist approaches view gender as part of the person; interactional approaches focus on the ways that gender emerges through social interaction; and institutional views emphasize how gender is built into organizations, social structures, and institutional arrangements. The book summarizes and examines these three frameworks to help students understand gender's contested meanings and vast areas of research. In addition to these themes, the book emphasizes the importance of analyzing gender in relation to other kinds of distinctions, such as those based on race, social class, or sexual orientation." Research findings by key scholars are discussed in each chapter, and selected readings from contemporary scholarship allow for comparative analysis of different areas of research. This up-to-date book is essential for students and scholars of gender.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“An excellent, theoretically complex, and clear introduction to the sociology of gender. It is consistently interesting, weaving theory and research to illuminate fundamental questions and complicated contemporary issues. I would use it, with pleasure.”

Joan Acker, University of Oregon

“Exceptional for its breadth and brevity, this book shows unique respect for students as sociological thinkers. Wharton engagingly presents up-to-date theoretical tools of gender analysis to help students explore the difficult, current questions posed by sociologists of gender.”

Sarah Beth Estes, University of Cincinnati
