Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

a brilliant and timely book (Katharine Viner, The Guardian)

In this vigorously argued book, [Cameron] also combats the cliché by example, writing in an enjoyable mode of pugnacious sarcasm (Steven Poole, The Guardian)

Cameron, skilled at deflating the sweeping generalisations of others... (The Sunday Times)

Cameron's wry, measured dismemberment of these stereotypes makes for enjoyable reading (Ceri Radford, The Daily Telegraph)

this delightfully spiky book (Susannah Herbert, The Sunday Times)

this immensely readable book (Romy Clark, Red Pepper magazine)

Cameron blows through the fog of pop-psych gender 'research' like Afrin through swollen sinuses, shrinking the claims of sound-bite science on contact (Jan Freeman, Boston Globe)

This short and enjoyable read ... is very welcome (Sarah Ensor, Socialist Review)

Fascinating, insightful, comprehensive ... you'll just have to read it for yourself (Contemporary UK Feminism, www.thefword.org.uk)

Cameron cites a lot of literature, makes her points lucidly, and distinguishes nicely between scientific consensus and cultural assumption. She's also bitingly funny (Read for Pleasure)

Cameron does a great job (Feminist Philosophers)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Popular assumptions about gender and communication - famously summed up in the title of the massively influential 1992 bestseller Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus - can have unforeseen but far-reaching consequences in many spheres of life, from attitudes to the phenomenon of 'date-rape' to expectations of achievement at school, and potential discrimination in the work-place.

In this wide-ranging and thoroughly readable book, Deborah Cameron, Rupert Murdoch Professor of Language and Communication at Oxford University and author of a number of leading texts in the field of language and gender studies, draws on over 30 years of scientific research to explain what we really know and to demonstrate how this is often very different from the accounts we are familiar with from recent popular writing.

Ambitious in scope and exceptionally accessible, The Myth of Mars and Venus tells it like it is: widely accepted attitudes from the past and from other cultures are at heart related to assumptions about language and the place of men and women in society; and there is as much similarity and variation within each gender as between men and women, often associated with social roles and relationships. The author goes on to consider the influence of Darwinian
theories of natural selection and the notion that girls and boys are socialized during childhood into different ways of using language, before addressing problems of 'miscommunication' surrounding, for example, sex and consent to sex, and women's relative lack of success in work and politics. Arguing that what linguistic differences there
are between men and women are driven by the need to construct and project personal meaning and identity, Cameron concludes that we have an urgent need to think about gender in more complex ways than the prevailing myths and stereotypes allow.

A compelling and insightful read for anyone with an interest in communication, language, and the sexes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extremely Insightful! 12 septembre 2010
Par Tes - Publié sur Amazon.com
I loved this book - it was well researched and all the assertions were backed up by sound logic yet it was extremely "readable." As a woman who has always found that "Mars/Venus" stuff not only patently false but also somewhat insulting - this book was like finding water in a desert.

My absolute favorite passage was when the author debunked that fallacy that men don't "hear" when women are asking them for help. Paraphrasing: "Is there a man alive who upon hearing his wife ask him if he can take out the trash ACTUALLY thinks that she is asking if it is physically possible for him to do so in the most abstract of inquiries." HA!

Deborah Cameron really hit the mark on this one. She details the myth that men and women speak "different" languages, and produces sharp and detailed evidence for why it is just a myth. Yet, her book remains emminently readable and entertaining.

I can see this book as having a wide target audience--from the average lay person who wants an entertaining and informative read, to the avid linguist. The only regret I had at the end of the book was that it was over, and I couldn't read more of it!

This book is certainly worth a read for anyone who's extremely tired of all the stereotypes about the "true natures" of men and women, as though we are somehow completely different species. The truth, of course, is that all that pop and evo psych bs is intended to excuse the bad behavior of men (and of course never of women). For instance, she does a brilliant take-down of the stereotype that women talk too much. However, my problem overall is that she'll start down a great take down of a stereotype, and right before she completely destroys the stereotype with awesome evidence, she backs off a bit and doesn't take it quite far enough. I also would have liked a little less focus on linguistics and a little more focus on behavior outside of speech or how it applies to the world. That said, this book is definitely worth reading. If nothing else, her chapter on how the only way rape can occur as a miscommunication is if all men are mentally disabled, is nothing short of magnificent.

Anyone who thinks they know anything about communication styles should read this book. It debunks all myths about male-female communication issues, and does so definitively.
