Summary

Gender Through the Prism of Difference adopts a global, transnational perspective on how race,
class, and sexual diversity are central to the study of sex and gender. In contrast with other books in
this area--which tend to focus on U.S. or European viewpoints--this wide-ranging anthology features
many articles based on research done elsewhere throughout the world. Now in its fifth edition,
the book opens with a revised and updated Introduction that sets the stage for understanding gender
as a socially constructed experience. Featuring twenty-eight new readings, this edition covers
compelling subjects like transgendered people, intersex issues, men and masculinity, sexual and
gender violence, disabilities, obesity, reproductive technologies, educational testing, aging and
ageism, and Occupy Wall Street.
