“Although the social psychology of the interactions between men and women is complicated (and the authors make no attempt to over-simplify it), this book is an easy and enjoyable read. The authors weave together evolutionary, cultural, and social role theories in a narrative format. This allows the book to read more like a novel than a list of research. The authors also provide a unique perspective on gender interactions by tying together research from a variety of domains with their underlying theory of hostility vs. interdependence and the ambivalence that this engenders in men and women towards the other sex....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, The Social Psychology of Gender would also be an excellent reference for social psychologists or gender researchers to have on their shelf.”

“Written in a narrative fashion as accessible to the reader with no  scientific training as to the scholar seeking an introduction to the  current state of the literature on gender, the book integrates a diverse  array of findings on development, cognition, and culture to develop the  empirical foundations for a detailed understanding of the authors'  particular theoretical perspective on gender relations....The authors'  use of a coherent, overarching theoretical framework to connect and make  sense of the findings from a large and often bewildering array of  studies on gender is a strength of this volume....A useful guide to  understanding the origins of inequality and the barriers that impede  efforts to eliminate it.”
