This text explores the social space occupied by both gender and ethnicity. as recognition of the sociological importance of gender and ethnicity has grown, so has the opportunity for exploring the intersections between them. The volume brings together both theoretical reflections and research in this area. For sociologists this presents a conceptual challenge, while for the individual it may present a series of dilemmas. These are traced out in studies which range from Punjabi families in the UK, to Surinamese migrants in Amsterdam, to Hindu and Muslim women and Black nurses in Britain, the African and Asian diasporas, and gender identity in post-Soviet Latvia.
