This exciting new textbook introduces readers to gender debates and topical issues within the social sciences. Introduction to Gender Studies offers an integrated approach, including commentary and analysis from women's studies, feminist works, and critical studies of masculinity. It is logically organised by introducing the subject of gender, before focusing on the debates within eight different disciplines. It concludes by examining interdisciplinary discussions of topical issues such as family, sex and sexuality, violence and resistance, work and leisure, health and illness, and education. This book is suitable for all students studying gender at an introductory level, either on its own or as part of a wider subject area. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
