“A refreshingly up-to-date collection of essays that covers a wide range of theories and debates, Gender Reckonings brings much needed clarity and breadth to the challenges of undoing or re-imagining gender away from its hegemonic moorings. These new essays by seasoned experts in gender and sexuality studies will be of enormous use to scholars and students alike, and are sure to become catalysts for future feminist analyses.”
—Suzanna Danuta Walters, Author of The Tolerance Trap: How God, Genes, and Good Intentions are Sabotaging Gay Equality
"The publication of Raewyn Connell's Gender and Power in 1987 proclaimed a new sociology of gender, from sex roles to situating gender relations in multiple fields of power. These exciting new essays refer back over three decades of theory and research, and suggest just how germinal that work was in generating new avenues of thinking about gender."
—Michael Kimmel, Author of Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era
“This collection by eminent scholars with a spectrum of styles and conceptual frameworks contributes immensely to our sociological understanding of gender theory and research. In looking back and moving forward, these authors celebrate, critique, and consider the changes and challenges of the social analysis of gender. This compelling volume demonstrates the diverse ways that contexts matter and the importance of engaging in social research for gender equality and social justice.”
—Margaret Abraham, Co-editor of Contours of Citizenship: Women, Diversity, and Practices of Citizenship
