Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In the decade since the First Edition of this critical and provocative text, many aspects of gender have changed, and many have stayed the same. While the gendered study of organizations is a growing field in its own right, in many real-life organizations gaps in gendered job roles and pay are as entrenched as they were.This new edition is a long-awaited update to an essential text in this dynamic and expanding field of inquiry, incorporating new, international perspectives that incorporate recent theory and debate, and a new chapter on gender and identity.Understanding Gender and Organizations is essential reading for students and academics in management, organization studies, gender studies, social psychology and sociology of work.
