The Psychology Of Gender Reviews


"Comprehensive and readable...Many contributors deal extensively with the social implications of studying gender, especially with respect to gender differentials in power. For advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty in psychology, sociology, and gender studies." - -Social & amp; Behavioral Sciences

"Contributes importantly to a current effort at understanding gender. The authors suggest that while everyone agrees that sex is biologically determined, agreement ends there....Brings together the work of noted authorities from a variety of psychological orientations." -- Women and Language

"Make[s] the point that whether our gender stereotypes are genetically influenced or are a result of limitations of our cognitive processing system, they are not immutable and we can and should be working to change our stereotypes to decrease the limitations people experience because of gender. This book is one step forward in that process, and I recommend it highly." -- Contemporary Psychology

"A very welcome addition to the literature on gender. There is excellent coverage of topics as how stereotypes create self-fulfilling prophecies for the behavior of women and men, and the social cognition literature on gender schemas. Beall's chapter on the social construction of gender is particularly welcome, as is Best and Williams's review of cross-cultural research on gender ideologies. Professionals in the areas of psychology of gender, feminist psychology, and social psychology will find these chapters essential reading--they are excellent syntheses of the latest research and theorizing on the psychology of gender." --Janet Shibley Hyde, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin

"Anne Beall and Robert Sternberg have edited an outstanding book that is distinguished by its wide diversity of viewpoints about gender and the depth of analysis of its individual chapters. Each chapter offers a distinct perspective on gender. These perspectives range from social learning and social cognitive theories to theories that give priority to the Freudian account of early childhood development or to assumptions about evolutionary pressures....By putting these divergent theoretical perspectives together in a single volume, Beall and Sternberg have produced a book that should have major impact on the development of psychological theories of gender. This book should be in the library of all psychologists and other scientists who have a serious interest in understanding gender.'' --Alice H. Eagly, Ph.D., Purdue University

"This accomplished, intellectually responsible text provides a broad perspective on the latest insights into the psychology of gender. Leaving nothing out, Beall and Sternberg's book will certainly provoke thought and discussion in virtually any graduate or undergraduate classroom. I am impressed." --Susan T. Fiske, Ph.D., University of Massachusetts

"Makes a significant contribution to the literature on gender, and provides an interesting and insightful framework for studying and understanding the impact of gender on men and women, on their intimate relationships, and on the larger social context... could serve serve as text or supplementary reading material for graduate courses in family studies, social psychology, sociology, psychology, and women's studies." --Donaa L. Sollie, Auburn University

"Current and sophisticated integration of experts in the field." --Dr. Elissa Koplik, Bloomfield College, New Jersey

"Furthers the study of female and male by examining life-span events according to theoretical models drawn from psychology, social psychology, and sociology....Informative and ideally suited to assist scholarly reflection on the diverse issues associated with gender. Regardless of their previous preparation and professional backgrounds, readers will obtain greater insight about the relationship of female to male and of individual to society regarding gender." --Jeffrey T. Huber, Ph.D., in Journal of Gay & Lesbian Social Services
