This extremely coherent and balanced presentation supplies a deeper, more solid intellectual framework for analyzing and questioning legal doctrines and policies as they pertain to sexual discrimination. Special features include: emphasizing alternative, often competing, perspectives, Bartlett and Harris organize their book around the major theoretical models for conceptualizing the relationship between gender and law, including: formal equality; substantive equality; nonsubordination or dominance theory; different voice theory; autonomy; and anti-essentialism. 'Putting theory into practice' sections in every chapter provide concrete problems that ask students to apply the different theoretical models studied. New cases and materials in every section include: sexual harassment; discrimination based on sexual orientation; glas ceiling issues; judicial bias; pregnancy and employment; and rape and domestic violence. A solid and reliable Teacher's Manual provides analysis, supplementary materials, case citations and other sources relating To The book's problems, notes, and questions. For current, candid, and intellectually rigorous approach To The field, use the new edition of a casebook that has proved its quality over time; GENDER AND LAW: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, Second Edition.
