|Description:||The book is organized into four parts. The fi rst introductory part contains two chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the fi eld, and chapter 2 outlines its history, beginning before the 20th century and continuing through the time of the publication of Maccoby and Jacklin’s Psychology of Sex Differences in 1974. The second part concerns differences between the sexes. This includes the basic biology of sex in chapter 3, and two chapters organizing research on behavioral sex differences. Chapter 4 addresses motor and cognitive behaviors, and chapter 5 addresses personality and social behaviors. The third part focuses on contemporary theoretical perspectives on gender development. We consider biological approaches in chapter 6, social and environmental approaches in chapter 7, and cognitive approaches in chapter 8. The fourth part addresses the social agents of gender development, beginning with children themselves as agents of their own gender development in chapter 9, followed by family, peers, the media, and schools as agents of gender development in chapters 10, 11, 12, and 13, respectively. We follow chapter 13 with a brief epilogue|
