The SAGE Handbook of Gender and Psychology is a unique, state-of-the-art synthesis of the known work, combined with current research trends, in the broad field of gender and psychology. In the past 35 years academic publications on the subject have increased tenfold, and this level of activity as well the diversity of research looks set to increase in the coming years too. The time is ideal for a systematic review of the field.

Contributions come from academics around the world and many different disciplines, and as a result multiple perspectives and a diversity of methodologies are presented to understand gender and its implications for behaviour. Chapters cover a wide variety of topics, theoretical approaches, contexts, and social issues; they also critically examine the key issues and current debates. Both advanced students and scholars will find extensive range and depth in the topics covered across the Handbook's 29 chapters. Published as a single volume, the handbook is aimed at individuals as well as the library market.

The SAGE Handbook of Gender and Psychology will have mass appeal across the field of psychology, including social psychology and gender and psychology, as well a number of other subject groups such as gender studies, sociology, organizational behaviour and political science.

Über den Autor (2013)

Michelle K. Ryan is Professor of Social and Organizational Psychology at the University of Exeter, UK, and Professor of Diversity at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

Nyla R. Branscombe is Professor of Psychology at University of Kansas. She received her B.A. from York University in Toronto, M.A. from the University of Western Ontario, and Ph.D. in 1986 from Purdue University. She has served as Associate Editor for Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, British Journal of Social Psychology, and Group Processes and Intergroup Relations.

Professor Branscombe has published more than 140 articles and chapters, has been co-recipient of the Otto Kleinberg prize for research on Intercultural and International Relations in 1999 and 2012, and the 1996 and 2001 Society of Personality and Social Psychology Publication Award. She co-edited the 2004 volume “Collective Guilt: International Perspectives,” published by Cambridge University Press, the 2007 volume “Commemorating Brown: The Social Psychology of Racism and Discrimination,” published by the American Psychological Association, the 2010 volume “Rediscovering Social Identity,” published by Psychology Press, the 2013 “Handbook of Gender and Psychology,” published by Sage, and the 2015 volume “Psychology of Change: Life Contexts, Experiences, and Identities,” published by Psychology Press. She is also co-author of the textbook, Social Psychology (14th ed., Branscombe & Baron, 2016), published by Pearson International.

Professor Branscombe's current research focuses on two main issues: the psychology of historically privileged groups—when and why they may feel collective guilt, and the psychology of disadvantaged groups—particularly how they cope with discrimination. She gratefully acknowledges ongoing research support from the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research: Social Interactions, Identity and Well-Being Program.
