Gender: The Basics is an engaging introduction which encourages the reader to pay attention to the impact of cultural, historical, biological, psychological and economic forces on the qualities which have come to be defined as masculine or feminine in particular contexts. Highlighting that there is far more to gender than biological sex, it takes a global perspective to examine the interaction between gender and topics including: Relationships, intimacy and concepts of sexuality The workplace and labour markets Gender related violence and war Public health, poverty and development The ageing process Supporting theory with a wide range of examples, suggestions for further reading and a detailed glossary, this text is an essential read for anyone approaching the study of gender for the first time.
"The text offers an in-depth exploration of the numerous factors at work in the construction of gender identity... the author explores the subject in thorough and highly accessible detail."- Kendall Petersen, Gender Questions
