Women, Men, and Society provides an analysis of gender inequality that addresses how sexism affects both men and women. The revision of this highly successful text maintains its emphasis on intersecting inequalities and shows how the consequences of gender inequality can be compounded by racism, social class inequality, ageism, and heterosexism. Although it focuses primarily on women and men in the United States, international issues and data are incorporated throughout. The text has been praised by reviewers for its thorough coverage of the field, its readability, and its logical organization. Claire Renzetti and Dan Curran, authors of Living Sociology (Allyn & Bacon 1998), Social Problems: Society in Crisis, Fourth Edition (Allyn & Bacon, 1996), and Theories of Crime (Allyn & Bacon, 1994) have remained true to their original goal in writing Women, Men, and Society, which continues to assist students in connecting a central element of their personal livestheir gender experienceswith the social and political world in which they live.
