Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This book provides a complete examination of the major topics involved in women's sexual and reproductive health and is supported by current cutting-edge research from notable members across disciplines.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to inform readers about the most current and relevant information regarding the epidemiological, social, and behavioral influences along with effective intervention and prevention strategies related to women's sexual and reproductive health. Additionally, the authors and editors hope to improve the science of prevention and improve the quality of women's lives. These are undoubtedly worthy objectives.
Audience: As the book is comprised of contributors from multidisciplinary areas such as psychology, anthropology, public health, medicine, nursing, and epidemiology, anyone involved or interested in women's sexual and reproductive health and the many issues surrounding it will find this book of clear benefit. The editors and contributors are credible authorities and have produced a worthwhile contribution to not only the field of psychology but to many other disciplines as well.
Features: The book is divided into 23 chapters with the first nine chapters covering the historical, developmental, and social influences on women's sexual and reproductive health. Media influences, alcohol, religious beliefs, and gendered norms are focused upon as well. Additionally, the epidemiological, psychological, prevention, and policy issues in the following ten chapters cover such topics as women's body images, sexual abuse, HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, menopause, and sexual dysfunction. The ethical and legal issues examined in the last four chapters of the book are a must read. A highlight of this book is the chapter on mass media and adolescent female sexuality.
Assessment: This is a worthwhile and highly beneficial book and will be of definite interest to all researchers and clinicians who seek greater knowledge and awareness of women's sexual and reproductive health.
From The Critics
Medical researchers, including those in behavioral sciences and health education, as well as contributors from communications, social sciences, history, and other fields summarize in depth the epidemiology, social and behavioral correlates, effective intervention and prevention strategies, and health policies related to women's sexual and reproductive health. First they explore how women's vulnerability to adverse sexual and reproductive health consequences is increased by a wide range of biological and social factors. Then they take a life-span approach to issues, and finally examine ethical and legal issues. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
