Integrates social class, race/ethnicity and gender as dimensions of equality across social issues. Explains basic sociological approaches, including functionalism, conflict theory and symbolic interactionism, and provides an overview of feminist theories. Analyzes trends in census data over the past two decades, and includes new sections on trends in women owned businesses and hate crimes. Discusses the global view of women in the labor force over the last three decades, and concludes with a section on Women and Aging that illustrates the compounded effects of the interconnections between class, race and gender issues on women as they progress through the course of life. For sociologists, social scientists, and those interested in women's studies.

A team of subject specialists has taken on the immense task of documenting publications in the area of women's studies in the last decades of the 20th century. The result is this truly monumental work, which maps the field, covering thousands of titles and Web sites in 19 subject areas published between 1985 and 1999. Intended as a reference and collection development tool, this bibliography provides a guide to women's studies information for each title along with a detailed, often evaluative review. The annotations summarize each work's content, its importance or contribution to women's studies, and its relationship to other titles on the subject. Most reviews cite and describe similar and contrasting titles, substantially extending the coverage. Core titles and titles that are out of print are noted, and reviews indicate which titles are appropriate as texts or supplemental texts.
