This article provides an overview of the Handbook of the Sociology of Gender. The book is divided into four sections.

The seven chapters in Part II focus on macrolevel structures and processes, and deal with the topics of societal evolution, national development, migration, poverty, social movements, organizations and culture as they relate to gender. Part III is devoted to microlevel structures and processes, including discussions of socialization, social roles, interaction and violence and harassment, as they shape and are shaped by gender.
