Booknews
Vertinsky (physical education and education, U. of British Columbia) examines the debate about women and exercise from the points of view of the male medical establishment, the early pioneering female doctors, intellectual feminism and the developing profession of psychology. Her special focus is on the cautionary, and sometimes misogynous, nature of medical prescriptions of exercise for the aging woman. Distributed by St. Martin's. Annotation c.
