Gender Inequality in Our Changing World: A Comparative Approach focuses on the contemporary United States but places it in historical and global context. Written for sociology of gender courses, this textbook identifies conditions that encourage greater or lesser gender inequality, explains how gender and gender inequality change over time, and explores how gender intersects with other hierarchies, especially those related to race, social class, and sexual identity. The authors integrate historical and international materials as they help students think both theoretically and empirically about the causes and consequences of gender inequality, both in their own lives and in the lives of others worldwide.

Kenschaft and Clark's Gender Inequality in Our Changing World is a treasure trove for teachers. The book has theory and empirical data woven through each chapter and addresses the gender issues of our time from a clearly outlined and integrated comparative, historical and global perspective. The framework promotes higher-level thinking and the thorough examination of key subjects and concepts in the sociology of gender. Each chapter features a section of suggested activities and pedagogical resources that can serve as any teacher's best allies in the process of creating a collaborative, interactive, reflective and intellectually challenging classroom.

-Ana S.Q. Liberato, Sociology, University of Kentucky

This book's contribution to undergraduate education in gender inequality is that the authors provide a strong historical perspective on the area of gender inequality they discuss in each chapter. Traditional college students do not have a depth of historical knowledge, especially about gender inequality and the author's inclusion of history makes the problem of gender inequality more understandable.

-Nancy Sonleitner, Sociology, The University of Tennessee at Martin
