“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....The text would be ideal for a graduate level psychology of gender course or even as a supplemental text for a class on intergroup relations. In addition to its use in the classroom, [it] would also be an excellent reference for social psychologists or gender researchers to have on their shelf.”

Sex Roles (on the first edition)

“This is a well-written, engaging book....Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty; general readers.”

Choice Reviews (on the first edition)

“The updated second edition of this excellent text provides insightful analyses of the social psychological processes that underlie gender effects in social interaction. The clear and engaging writing makes this book an excellent choice for courses on gender in psychology and related fields. Students will enjoy this book as they learn from it.”

—Alice H. Eagly, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emerita), Northwestern University

“Rudman and Glick are expert scholars who have written an authoritative, accessible book that is ideal for students, researchers, and others interested in how gender relations shape our lives. Having regularly used the first edition in my courses, I welcome the second edition's updated and expanded coverage. The text reflects the pervasive influence of gender dynamics in our lives—for example, readers will learn what we know about gender stereotyping and sexism, dominance and hierarchy, work and romantic relationships, and gender development in childhood. New chapters have been added on the sexualization of women and masculinity norms, and the authors have consolidated some chapters from the first edition to make the book more concise and accessible. I look forward to using this second edition in my classes!”

—Campbell Leaper, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Santa Cruz

“This is one of my favorite scholarly texts on gender. Written by two of the field’s most creative and accomplished researchers, the book offers a unique perspective on the social, cognitive, and cultural forces that shape gender. I recommend this book as required reading for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in social psychology, women’s and gender studies, and sociology. It is accessible, highly engaging, and informative. The second edition is tight and polished, with updated content that gives it a fresh feel.”

—Jennifer K. Bosson, PhD, Department of Psychology, The University of South Florida
