Archer, John and Barbara Lloyd:  Sex and Gender
Book Number: 43204
Cambridge University Press August 12, 2002 8vo softcover 294pp very good. This second edition of John Archer and Barbara Lloydas Sex and Gender is extremely wide-ranging and tackles challenging theoretical issues, including the ultimate origins of sex differences in human behavior. In bringing social, developmental, and evolutionary theories to bear on many different types of female and male behaviors, Archer and Lloyd have produced an intellectually sophisticated text. Yet, the writing is engaging and accessible to undergraduates. Another plus is that the research covered in the book stems from a wide range of cultures. This is a truly outstanding book! Sex and Gender (2nd edt.) is a substantially revised edition of a classic text. Adopting a balanced approach to the often controversial study of sex differences, the authors introduce the reader to the fundamental questions relating to sex and gender in an accessible way. Drawing on the latest research, new developments are explored such as the rise of evolutionary psychology and the influence of Social Role Theory as well as new psychoanalytic and ethno-methodological approaches which have all contributed to a greater understanding of the complex nature of masculinity and femininity.

Wallerstein, Judith Et Al:  Unexpected Legacy of Divorce
Book Number: 49204
HarperCollins Publishers June 28, 2001 8vo softcover 347pp near fine. Twenty-five years ago, when the impact of divorce on children was not well understood, Wallerstein began what has now become the largest study on the subject, and this book, presents the psychologist's startling findings. By tracking approximately 100 children as they forge their lives as adults, she has found that contrary to the popular belief that kids would bounce back after the initial pain of their parents' split, children of divorce often continue to suffer well into adulthood. Their pain plays out in their relationships, their work lives and their confidence about parenting themselves. Wallerstein argues that although the situation is dire, there is hope to be found at the end of good counseling and healing.
