The chapter on archaeology and anthropology was dropped from the fourth edition at the suggestion of official reviewers, but the howl of protests from teachers and students have brought it back. The goal is to help students relate their gendered experiences to the social and political world, then look beyond their own lives to the diversity of gendered experiences.

In this iteration (last, 1995; first, 1989), Renzetti and Curran (both of St. Joseph's U.) touch the major bases in gender studies from a feminist perspective: nature/nurture interaction; and social factors keeping women and men in their respective places in relationships, employment, the criminal justice and healthcare systems, and religion. Includes a glossary defining terms from "acquaintance rape" to "Women-Church movement," and a 38-page bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
