"...An exploration of the intersection of gender and psychology-topics that resonate across disciplines and inform our everyday lives. This encyclopedia looks at issues of gender, identity, and psychological processes at the individual as well as the societal level, exploring topics such as how gender intersects with developmental processes both in infancy and childhood and throughout later life stages; the evolution of feminism and the men's movements; the ways in which gender can affect psychological outcomes and influence behaviour; and more..."
"a comprehensive psychological overview of gender and its role in society... An excellent starting point for further research into a timely and current subject. Most useful as part of a professional collection for counselors, graduate and advanced undergraduate counseling students."
"the thoroughness and diversity of topics and viewpoints is breath-taking and laudable... The encyclopedia does a great job trying to tackle all the meaningful dimensions of psychology and gender and provide users with a grasp on the topic and a resource for delving deeper. This title is highly recommended for academic libraries, especially at institutions with significant psychology/marriage and family therapy programs as well as sociology and related programs."
