What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'In this path-breaking collection, the authors neither ignore gender nor link it simplistically to emotional stereotypes. Instead, they offer us an array of rich, illuminating, and cutting edge ideas about emotion at work... This is a must read for students and scholars of emotion, gender, work, and indeed for anyone who has emotions and goes to work.' - Arlie Russell Hochschild, Professor, University of California, Berkeley, USA, and author of The Managed Heart

'This interesting collection reveals the fascinating ways that gender's emotionalities are shaped in and by organizations. The authors firmly nail the myth that there are 'essential' differences between the emotions of men and women, and that's all we need to know. ...This book is a noteworthy contribution to our critical understanding of emotion in organizations.' - Stephen Fineman, Professor of Organizational Behaviour, University of Bath, UK

'Drawing on a range of empirical data, including new work on the previously neglected area of men and emotions, the book is the first to bring together emerging literature on this fascinating topic.' - International Accountant
