With the aid of more than three hundred children's drawings, the author attempts to relate the patriarchal features of capitalism and state socialism tothe way in which children structure their world by gender. Richer examines types of play and children's self-conceptions in the two societies, and draws conclusions about the salience of gender differentiation in the daily lives of children. The book concludes with provocative suggestions for restructuring children's play to counter the development of gender-based inequalities." i5.
