For undergraduate courses in Anthropology of Gender, Introduction to Women's Studies, Gender Roles, and Sociology of Women.This lively text uses a historical framework to address gender in America in terms of a set of dominant cultural themes-explaining how these themes both fluctuate over time, and are responded to in different ways by various ethnic groups and social classes. It encourages students to consider gender in America as enmeshed in the country's distinctive cultural traditions.
