    Beschreibung:
    This volume provides an in-depth comparative picture of the current state of feminist sociological gender and women's studies research in four regions of the world--Africa, Asia, Latin America/Caribbean, and Europe--as represented by many countries. The introductory essay to each region explains how social science research on women and/or gender issues has been shaped by economics, politics, and culture, and by trends that are simultaneously local, regional and global. It familiarizes readers with the wide range of salient issues, research methods, writing styles, and leading authors from around the globe. Then each regional section includes up to four chapters on gender research in specific countries that represent the region's diversity and cover the major theoretical and empirical trends that have emerged over time, as well as the relationship of key research questions to feminist activism and womens or gender studies. Next, the editors illustrate this new wave of gender scholarship with translated/reprinted samples of research articles from additional countries in the region, that cover a wide range of important global topicssuch as work, sexuality, masculinities, childcare and family issues, religion, violence, law and gender policies. Finally, this volume provides scholars with extensive bibliographies and a listing of web sites for womens and gender research centers in 85 countries. Readers will learn to compare and contrast the threads of similarity and strands of difference in feminist concerns globally, gain familiarity with the breadth of gender research, and understand the national contexts that produced it.
