'Gender and Culture in Psychology is a gift to students and scholars of psychology, critical race theory, feminist studies and narrative researchers. Eva Magnusson and Jeanne Marecek brilliantly hold our intellectual hands as they walk us through an elegant and accessible genealogy of gender, culture, interpretative analysis, discourse, meaning making and the ways in which the local both shapes and limits what we say.' Michelle Fine, Distinguished Professor, City University of New York

'A compelling work of subtlety and scholarship by two eminent feminist researchers whose wide experience across the field of psychological theory and practice make this accessible and elegant text essential reading for psychological practitioners, students and researchers alike.' Erica Burman, Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies, Manchester Metropolitan University

'This book will delight readers searching for an accessible yet sophisticated introduction to a more contextual approach to psychology. Integrative and engaging, it is a treasure chest of ideas and examples drawn from across and beyond the discipline. This is a timely and important book that is likely to inspire a new generation of students and scholars with tools to do psychology differently.' Nicola Gavey, University of Auckland
