Review
"In The Gendered Society, Michael S. Kimmel examines our basic beliefs about gender, arguing that men and women are more alike than we have ever imagined." "The issues surrounding gender are complex, and in order to clarify them, the author has included a review of the existing literature in related disciplines such as biology, anthropology, psychology, and sociology. With an eye toward the future, Kimmel offers readers a glimpse at gender relations in the next millennium."--Jacket.
