A unique text/reader that explores the elusive, evolving construct of gender through the metaphor of a kaleidoscope Accessible, timely, and stimulating, the Third Edition provides a comprehensive analysis of the key ideas, theories, and applications in the field viewed through the metaphor of a kaleidoscope. Focusing on contemporary contributions to the field while incorporating classical and theoretical arguments, this collection of creative articles by top scholars explains how the complex, evolving pattern of gender studies is constructed interpersonally, institutionally, and culturally. Key features Updated introductions to each chapter and each reading provide an overview of the pertinent theoretical and thematic issues addressed.

A unifying theme using the kaleidoscope as a metaphor provides students with a valuable analytic tool for understanding the significance of gender in our society.
