    Review quote
    "Although the social psychology of the interactions between men and women is complicated (and the authors make no attempt to oversimplify it), this book is an easy and enjoyable read. ... Would be ideal for a graduate-level psychology of gender course or even as a supplemental text for a class on intergroup relations." - Sex Roles "The best text I've seen to date on how gender influences social interaction...This book will engage students readily and teach them how to understand and analyze the impact of gender on everyday life. Their beliefs about social interaction will be forever changed. This excellent, well-organized text is accessible enough that it could be used in courses at any level." - Alice H. Eagly, Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, USA "Engaging, informative, and broad ranging...The book systematically presents theoretical interpretations from three different schools of thought: evolutionary psychology, culture/role theory, and social structural theory. Ideal for classroom use as well as for anyone who wants to learn about important new directions in research on gender dynamics." - Mary R. Jackman, Department of Sociology, University of California, Davis, USA "The review is comprehensive, the writing lively, and the insights plentiful. A 'must read' for all students of gender. I plan to use this book in my undergraduate course." - Madeline E. Heilman, Department of Psychology, New York University, USA
