Taking Sides: Clashing Views in Gender (Third Edition)

Taking Sides: Clashing Views in Gender, Third Edition, is a debate-style reader designed to introduce students to controversies in gender. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading sociologists, researchers, and social commentators, reflect a variety of viewpoints and have been selected for their liveliness and substance and because of their value in a debate framework.

For each issue, the editor provides a concise introduction and postscripts summary. The introduction sets the stage of the debate as it is argued in the “yes” and “no” readings, and the postscript briefly reviews the opposing views and suggest additional readings on the controversial issue under discussion.

By requiring students to analyze opposing viewpoints and reach considered judgments, Taking Sides actively develop students’ critical thinking skills. It is this development of critical thinking skills that is the ultimate purpose of each of the volumes in the widely acclaimed Taking Sides program.
