Choice Review

Women and Men in Management is an easy-to-read, detailed presentation of the role and treatment of women in organizations today. Similar to other compendiums, it discusses sex differences, gender issues and biases, sexual harassment, and the glass ceiling. Of particular interest to students of psychology and sociology is the in-depth treatment of the development of gender differences and identity. Addressing newer topics are the informative chapters "Dealing with Sexuality in the Workplace," which expands on the usual legal framework to address the widespread phenomenon of workplace romances, and the chapter "Working in Teams," which effectively explores the effects of sex and gender on interpersonal relations in teams. Excellent chapter-end bibliographies. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. General readers; undergraduate and graduate students of business, management, and sociology; and managers. R.
