    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 39.99

    Shedding light on the meaning of 'passing' and 'outing' in relation to identity, Passing/Out constructs a dialogue between the work of scholars whose intellectual careers began prior to the advent of queer theory and those whose work has been more immediately and directly shaped by this approach, with a view to breaking new ground in... more...

  • Re-negotiating Genderby Lake Lui

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    In Chinese societies where both "money" and "gender" confer power, can a woman's economic success relative to her husband's bring about a more equal division of household labor?
