Omtale: Introducing Gender and Women's Studies
The fourth edition of this classic, comprehensive and best-selling text on gender and women's studies marks over twenty years of engaging with the key issues and developments in gender and feminist theory. With fully revised chapters written by specialists across a range of core topics, including sexuality, work, the media, race, education, family, bodies, masculinity, methodologies, social movements and politics, this accessible but academically rigorous collection breaks down contemporary debates with helpful examples and questions, whilst also underlining the complexities and contradictions of this area of study. In particular, this new edition: * continues to reflect the shift from 'women's studies' to 'gender studies', incorporating masculinity studies throughout; * features new chapters on violence and the environment, reflecting continuing and more recent feminist concerns; * includes expanded discussion of intersectionality, international and transnational issues. Coinciding with an upsurge in new forms of feminist politics, this timely publication confirms the continuing relevance of gender and women's studies.
It remains an indispensable resource for students, academics and anyone interested in this lively field.
