Overview

50 Key Concepts in Gender Studies / Edition 1

From "androcentrism" to "women's studies," this A-Z primer offers a concise introduction to core terms in this evolving field birthed by second-wave feminism (itself a key term). Pilcher (sociology, U. of Leicester) and Whelehan (women's studies, De Montford U.) provide historical and philosophical context on gender studies. Entries include cross-references and further reading. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
