Encyclopedia of Sex and Gender: Men and Women in the World's Cultures



The central aim of this encyclopedia is to give the reader a comparative perspective on issues involving conceptions of gender, gender differences, gender roles, relationships between the genders, and sexuality. The encyclopedia is divided into two volumes: "Topics" and "Cultures". The combination of topical overviews and varying cultural portraits is what makes this encyclopedia a unique reference work for students, researchers and teachers interested in gender studies and cross-cultural variation in sex and gender. It deserves a place in the library of every university and every social science and health department. The contents: Glossary; Cultural Conceptions of Gender; Gender Roles, Status, and Institutions; Sexuality and Male-Female Interaction; Sex and Gender in the World's Cultures; Culture Name Index; and, Subject Index.
