Appeared in Choice on 1985-09:
The study of women and sex roles is moving from its unique place in psychology to have an impact on areas of more traditional concern to psychology. In this book social psychology and gender issues are reviewed by experts to reveal new directions in research and theory. All chapters are original articles by recognized social psychologists, such as Spence, Veroff, and Peplau. Among the topics covered are achievement motivation, helping behavior, aggression, and groups. The research literature referenced is remarkably current, with citations through 1983. As a source book, it is in a league with Women, Dependent or Independent Variable ed. by Rhoda K. Unger and Florence L. Denmark (1975) and Psychology of Women: Future Directions in Research, ed. by Julia Sherman and Florence L. Denmark (CH, Jun '80). Researchers, teaching faculty, and graduate students are its target audience, but upper-division behavioral science students preparing for graduate study will find it valuable also.
