Drawing on sociology and social policy, this intriguing volume considers various aspects of gender and professional identity. Contributors explore the inter-relationship between managerialism, professionalism and gender identity in Britain, and examine the processes and impacts of change on those working in public sector organizations in other countries as they come under varying managerial pressures. The subject is viewed from a variety of perspectives, including feminism and post-modernism.

With an international range of contributors, this important book brings together an array of ideas about gender and professionals and provides an important contribution to the growing debates on gender and the workplace. A significant volume for both postgraduates and professionals in the fields of management and business studies, Gender and the Public Sector provides a more sophisticated analysis of international public sector change than is currently available elsewhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Despite a burgeoning literature over recent years on gender and organizations...the argument for taking a gender perspective, or even acknowledging that gender matters has, by and large, not spilled over into research on public sector organizations and New Public Management (NPM). It is this deficit that the book ... aims to address.' - Dr Robyn Thomas, Cardiff University, Public Management Review

'The book is of relevance to anyone who is interested in the public sector and professions, regardless of whether the principle concern is one of gender. The debates it raises cut across many of the core themes in public sector management. It provides a timely reminder, whatever our theoretical perspective and research interest, of the need to be gender sensitive (Alvesson and Skoeldberg 2000) in our research. The volume draws attention to the socially constructed and contested nature of NPM, gender, and professional and managerial identities. In doing so, it provides a rich insight into the manifold ways in which individuals and groups respond to the discourses of change and the material outcomes this has on their daily lives.' - Dr Robyn Thomas, Cardiff University, Public Management Review
