This is a very interesting and important collection of articles...what unites these papers and makes them particularly interesting is threefold: all question assumptions that have been made about gendered organization and work; all do more than simply point out those assumptions, providing a re-analysis in each particular area; and all firmly ground their analyses in concrete data. It is not only this last which sets them apart from recent cultural studies, but also the fact that they do not seem to sacrifice more perceptive and nuanced interpretations in the process...[the articles] all show that it is in fact possible to do sensitive research that is underpinned by data.All of them not only provide useful critiques of previous approaches, but also move the discipline forward by adding new analyses to it. -- Susan A. Johnston, George Washington University * Anthropological Quarterly, Vol. 77, No. 1, Winter 2004 *
