The Psychology of Sex and Gender

By Jennifer Katherine Bosson, Camille E. Buckner, and Joseph Alan Vandello, 2021

As the field of gender science evolves at a rapid pace, a new text is needed to provide students with fresh, contemporary examples, balanced coverage of men and women, and a grounding in psychological science. The Psychology of Sex and Gender does all three. The dynamic author team of Bosson, Buckner, and Vandello combine classic and cutting-edge research findings, historical contexts, examples from popular culture, cross-cultural universality and variation, and coverage of non-binary individuals to present the psychology of sex and gender as the cutting-edge field that it is. In keeping with the growing scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL), in every chapter the authors ask students to identify and evaluate their own myths and misconceptions, participate in real-world debates on hot topics at the forefront of the field, and “stop and think” to respond to critical-thinking opportunities along the way. Students will be talking about this book long after they finish the course, carrying a new appreciation for this complex subject forward into their lives and future careers
