about

Gender Reversals and Gender Cultures is a collection of specially commissioned essays taking a cross cultural and cross historical perspective on the subject. The book documents the universality of gender reversals, with chapters ranging from early Christianity up to the present. It examines how gender reversals are bound up with taboo, and how this underlies various religious and ritual activities. Gender Reversals and Gender Cultures also shows how attitudes to gender-reversal can reveal much about a particular culture.

Editorial Reviews

"Ramet's volume succeeds in achieving its aim--exploring the cultural diversity of gender reversals over time. The book itself is well organized and would provide a very useful teaching tool for gender/cultural studies.lo Lesley J. Gotlib, M.A..""[Gender Reversals and Gender Cultures] demonstrates...that one can write about trendy topics for which there is a wealth of theoretical jargon available in clear and vivid language."-"Journal of Social History "A welcome addition to research in the fast-growing field of comparative gender studies...no other work includes so many different national perspectives."-Gary Kates, University of Texas
