Sex, gender, and society by Ann Oakley( Book )

90 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the differences between the sexes? That is the question that Ann Oakley set out to answer in this pioneering study, now established as a classic in the field. To answer it she draws on the evidence of biology, anthropology, sociology and the study of animal behaviour to cut through popular myths and reach the underlying truth. She demonstrates conclusively that men and women are not two separate groups: rather each individual takes his or her place on a continuous scale. She shows how different societies define masculinity and femininity in different and even opposite ways, and discusses how far observable differences are based on biology and psychology and how far on cultural conditioning. Many books have discussed these vital issues. None, however, have drawn on such an impressively wide range of evidence or discussed it with such clarity and authority. Now newly reissued with a substantial introduction which highlights its continuing relevance, this work will continue to inform and shape dialogues around sex and gender for a new generation of scholars and students.--

Experiments in knowing : gender and method in the social sciences by Ann Oakley( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the history, ideology and implications of methodology or 'ways of knowing' in the social and natural sciences. It extends arguments developed in the author's previous work that divisions between 'quantitative' and 'qualitative' methods are unhelpful in the pursuit of useful knowledge, and that a major challenge facing scientists, academics and the public today is the need to scrutinize the claims professionals of all kinds make to possess effective expertise. The rejection of 'quantitative' and experimental methods, in particular, prevents us from understanding both the parameters of social inequality and the effects of professional interventions in people's lives and obstructs the development of a critical and emancipatory social science."--Jacket
Fracture : adventures of a broken body by Ann Oakley( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starts with the fracture of Oakley’s right arm in the grounds of a hotel in the USA. What begins as an accident becomes a journey into some critical themes of modern Western culture: the crisis of embodiment and the perfect self; the confusion between body and identity; the commodification of bodies and body parts; the intrusive surveillance and profiteering of medicine and the law; the problem of aging; and the identification of women, particularly, with bodies - from the intensely ambiguous two-in-one state of pregnancy to women's later transformation into unproductive, brittle skeletons. Fracture mixes personal experience with 'facts' derived from other literatures, including the history of medicine, neurology, the sociology of health and illness, philosophy, and legal discourses on the right to life and people as victims of a greedy litigation system.

Gender on planet Earth by Ann Oakley( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Gender on Planet Earth, influential author, social scientist and iconoclastic feminist Ann Oakley argues that men and women have inherited and reinforce a system of gender differences that has a destructive effect on them, their shared humanity and the planet. By showing us how every aspect of our lives is dominated by male/female power structures, she forces us to take a step back and see how and why gender inequality has thrown our society out of balance."--Jacket
