Reviews

“The book presents the reader with a detailed account of the historical context within which gender studies emerged and developed in Western higher education, from women’s studies via feminism and queer studies to the study of masculinities. … Alice Ferrebe and Fiona Tolan have assembled a useful toolkit for academics intending to introduce or update university courses with a specific focus on gender, including a guide to further reading organized by topic.” (Marion Dalvai, The European Legacy, Vol. 20 (2), December, 2015)
