Editorial Reviews

"[T]his is a book that investigators interested in gender performance, and doing/undoing gender difference, in gendered organizational contexts, will want on their bookshelves. I would also recommed it for advanced undergraduate students and graduate seminars on gender." —Michael P. Carroll, University of Western Ontario
