CHOICE Review

McGinley (Univ. of Nevada) examines employment discrimination cases from a social science perspective, specifically multidimensional masculinities theory. She illustrates how the use of this complex approach to encompass multiple aspects of identity could allow courts to investigate cases "because of sex," according to Title VII law. Multiple relevant court cases are evaluated to reflect how courts struggle with issues such as establishing "disparate treatment" versus "disparate impact" of discrimination experienced by plaintiffs. Through extensive analysis of how gender functions in different job environments and application of the theory to actual court cases, McGinley calls for the use of social scientists' expert testimony (whether "pure" or "applied") to help judges and juries question "common sense" approaches to gender discrimination in the workplace. This book could be incorporated into upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in criminal justice, sociology, women's studies, and psychology. It could also contribute to research and faculty collections. Because of Race (CH, Mar'09, 46-3975) would pair well with this book to offer another perspective of how school-based discrimination cases have been negotiated in the US Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. --Catherine Lara Lalonde, D'Youville College
