Excellent text book for Women Studies Intro Classes March 19 2013
By sriyanthie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great because of the little stories that are incorporated throughout, the statistics and insightful connections. It gives credit where credit is due to women all over the world, unlike some texts that seem to indicate that only the US gets women's issues right. An easy read. Scholarly material. Well researched.
Strong Introductory Text & Reader includes Multiple Voices Jan. 12 2014
By Flora Irlanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As an instructor of women and gender studies, I have found this text to be a strong one for introductory WGS courses, particularly for those in global perspective. It's also an excellent text as an introduction to transnational feminist thought and practice. The strength of this text is its multiplicity of voices. Each chapter is authored by topic specialists, so rather than one authoritative voice, so that each topic area is strong and thorough. In addition, every chapter includes readings and essays that further bring the topical issues into perspective for students.

Its very strength in folding in numerous voices, however, also makes for a weakness: the variety of voices can make it difficult to maintain cohesion throughout the chapters that one would see with a standard textbook. There are going to be some repetitions, which is to be expected, and even some areas where students are expected to know or remember more than they might normally. Another strength can be a weakness, or vice versa: it has a strong focus on transnational feminist thought, and the development of critiques of Western feminism, which is a fantastic starting point for some classes, but may not be as relevant for others (such as those focusing mainly on globalization, or the history of women/gender in development discourse). Overall, though, the book is well done, and I would think most Instructors will find it one of the strongest in the field at this time.

This book was actually interesting because of the stories and situations they had throughout the book. Not sure if they're real stories or just made up but they were good nontheless

Puts me to sleep. May 6 2013
By Barbara Henley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I know this book is trying to get through a lot os statistics, which is hard to do, but my Ethnic Studies book does too and that book I have a hard time putting down, this book on the other hand I can't read more than a few pages at a time because it literally puts me to sleep and is a drudgery to read.
