Gender: Psychological Perspectives examines the research and theory from psychology and related fields in order to evaluate the behavior, biology, and social context in which both women and men function. This book examines the topic of gender-the behaviors and attitudes that relate to (but are not entirely congruent with) biological sex. Although research and scholarship form the basis of this book, Brannon supplements the review of scholarly research with personal, narrative accounts of gender-relevant aspects of people's lives as well as highlights from a cross-cultural perspective of gender. The personal narrative and diversity highlights help to balance the research-based scholarship with the personal experience of gender. Highlights of the Fourth Edition: Balanced coverage of gender with attention to and critical analysis of both men and women's issues. ";Headlines"; sections from newspapers, journals, and magazines expose students to the bias that can be found in the media and encourage readers to think critically about the material that they read. Ten are new to this edition. ";Considering Diversity"; sections provide a ";close up"; view of important topics related to the growing field of diversity within gender studies. Each chapter provides some context for a closer examination of a cross-cultural topic. New chapter on the process and influences on developing gender identity (Ch. 6, ";Developing Gender identity";). Chapter 5, ";Theories of Gender,"; is now devoted to theories of gender development, including psychodynamic and social theories. More than 500 new references.
