Over the past 15 years, I (MB) have taught a graduate-level course in Psychology of Women to students in two different professional psychology programs. Because my students were at the doctoral level and often had some familiarity with the psychology of women, these courses focused on bringing a feminist analysis of psychology and integrating a feminist analysis into one's scholarly work and professional activities. Although I used several fine psychology of women textbooks during this time, I found none that was specifically designed for graduate students. Thus, I always augmented the textbook with journal articles on specific aspects of the topic, and these focused articles have typically been well received by the students. The s- dents whom I have encountered in these courses have often expressed a wish for a textbook that is designed for their needs; I think what they are asking for is one that could serve as a foundation for their scholarly analysis of psychology as well as a springboard for thoughtful application of a feminist perspective to the profession of psychology. Therefore, Issues in the Psychology of Women has been designed to serve as a textbook for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses including Psychology of Women or Feminist Analysis of Psychology. This book is the collective work of authors with special expertise in their chapter topic.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Pre-publication praise:
`[A]n excellent book with chapters presented by outstanding psychologists who have expertise in the various topics covered in the text. This book will be useful for both graduate and advanced undergraduate students; it is both informative and well written. The issues presented here will serve as a touchstone for students and instructors to have thoughtful discussions and explore their own feelings and attitudes. I look forward to using it in my own graduate course on women and gender. Kudos to the editors for such an outstanding book.'
