Thoroughly updated in this second edition, Introduction to Gender offers a multidisciplinary approach to the main themes and debates in gender studies. This comprehensive and contemporary text explores the idea of gender from the perspective of history, sociology, social policy, anthropology, psychology, politics, pedagogy and geography and considers issues such as health and illness, work and leisure, and culture and media. Throughout the text, studies on masculinity are highlighted alongside essential feminist work, producing an integrated investigation of the field.
