Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This work is a much needed addition to the literature on the psychology of women. As an instructor of courses in psychology of women, sex and gender, as well as the introduction to women's studies, I have spent a considerable amount of class time discussing feminist analyses of beauty and physical attractiveness. There hasn't been, to date, a text I believed I could use to supplement the material--until Dr. Jackson's. The book is well-conceptualized, well-organized and well-written. The references are terrific. I have already updated my presentations based on the information in this text."
-- Michele A. Paludi, Hunter College

This book examines two kinds of research, research in social psychology and in clinical psychology, into the effects of physical appearance on person perception. Both are explored with the objective of identifying gender similarities and differences on the effects of physical appearance. The theoretical framework for integrating the two approaches is presented, with implications of this framework for future research, social change, and psychotherapy. The book demonstrates that gender must be considered in research on physical appearance effects.

"This is the first genuine attempt to discuss and analyze gender differences. That, in itself, makes it an important and significant work. It is a highly analytic textbook which reflects the most scholastic effort undertaken to compare competing theories in understanding physical appearance and gender differences. It provides an excellent model for others to emulate in the continuing study of physical appearance."
-- Gerald R. Adams, Professor and Chair, Department of Family Studies, University of Guelph
