Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 007009182X, Paperback)

This brief undergraduate supplemental text is the latest edition to the prestigious McGraw-Hill Series in Social Psychology. This text is a major new contribution to the rapidly emerging field of the social psychology of gender. Shawn Burn has included the highest level of research and scholarship making this book academically rigorous, yet keeping it accessible for the undergraduate student. The goal of this text is to diffuse the gender-based stereotypical differences reinforced by our society with systematic, objectively grounded research. Social Psychology of Gender focuses our attention on the power of social norms and cultural traditions and on the reward structures inherent in different socialization pressures. This text also explores how we may escape the limitations of traditional gender roles, changing them for our better mental and physical health and for a fuller enjoyment of life.
