About this book

Engendering Emotions examines the production and promotion of the idea of sex/gender difference in emotional experience and expression in the contemporary West. Focusing on the psychology of emotions and on the spheres of aggression and war, and love, intimacy and sex, it explores how the idea of emotional difference serves to define and govern relations between men and women. The book draws on diverse theoretical work and recent empirical data to chart new territory in the study of sex/gender differences.
