This book provides an accessible and interdisciplinary introduction to current debates on gender, exploring the major theorists whose work has produced and inspired feminist analysis in women's/gender studies, cultural studies and sociology. By clarifying and explaining the concepts of gender analysis and by demonstrating ways of working with these concepts, the authors involve the readers directly in the reading process and leave them feeling empowered. Accessible introductions to the work of major theorists help to give difficult concepts a context and the theory is related back to practice and to related fields such as class and race analysis throughout.
