Part of a new `Key Concepts' series published by SAGE, Key Concepts in Gender Studies offers 1,500 word expositions of 50 topics central to the field.
Jane Pilcher and Imelda Whelehan's introduction gives an account of gender studies - what it is and how it originated. Their selection of topics is authoritative and the 50 entries reflect the complex, multi-faceted nature of the field in an accessible dictionary format.
Each of the 50 key concepts:
* begins with a concise definition
* includes illustrations of how the concept has been applied within the field
* offers examples which allow a critical re-evaluation of the concept
* is cross-referenced with the other key concepts
* makes further reading suggestions.
The level of detail offered encourages understanding of gender studies without sacrificing depth detail and critical evaluation essential to convey the complexity of the issues dealt with. As such, the book appeals both to undergraduate and postgraduate students across a range of social science disciplines.
50 Key Concepts in Gender Studies gives testimony to the health of gender studies and related disciplines and looks forward to an ever-shifting dynamic of debates and ideas.

"Pilcher and Whelehan (Univ. of Leicester and De Monfort Univ.) introduce their volume in Sage's "Key Concepts" series by providing a historical sketch of the academic study of women. Gender studies, which some believe will be the next wave in women's studies, is presented as an inclusive concept that recognizes intergroup and intragroup inequality, diversity, and difference." -- CHOICE
