Gender: Psychological Perspectives examines the behavior, biology, and social context in which both women and men function. This text examines the topic of genderthe behaviors and attitudes that relate to (but are not entirely congruent with) biological sex. Research and scholarship form the basis of this book, providing the material for a critical review and an overall picture of gender from a psychological perspective. To accent the relevance of research findings in vivid detail, Brannon supplements the review of scholarly research with personal, narrative accounts of gender-relevant aspects of people's lives. Brannon highlights the cross-cultural perspective of gender by including a section on diversity in each chapter plus weaving diversity issues throughout the text. The personal narrative and diversity highlights help to balance the research-based scholarship with the personal experience of gender.
