Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Our Bodies, Ourselves for the New Century is the first major revision of this classic since 1984 and reflects the major changes that have occurred in every area of women's health. It is still the definitive consumer health reference of all women.

This new focus encompasses such controversial issues as:
-- Managing "managed care" and the insurance industry
-- Questioning breast cancer treatment options
-- Recent scientific developments in contraception and reproductive technology, including drug-induced abortions
-- Violence as a women's public health issue
-- Preventing and living with HIV/AIDS
-- The impact of racism on sexuality
-- Chiropractic, herbal, and other alternative/complementary therapies, including natural approaches to menopause
-- Poverty and racism as major determinants of women's health.

Synopsis:

The essential resource on women's health and sexuality comes of age in this newly revised and updated edition of a long-loved classic.

Our Bodies, Ourselves for the New Century reflects the vital health concerns of women of diverse ages, ethnic and racial backgrounds, and sexual orientations. In these pages, women will find new information, resources (including web sites!), and personal support for the decisions that will shape their health — and their lives — from living a healthy life, to relationships and sexuality, to child-bearing, growing older, dealing with the medical system, and organizing for change. This is a book for women of all generations to use, to rely on, and to share with others.
