Overview

"Exposing the ideological bases of the medical/scientific information (and disinformation) we receive, Hubbard . . . gives us a book sophisticated in its analysis but accessible in its style." --Ms. Magazine

Sophisticated in its analysis, yet not at all technical in its exposition, this book will find a wide readership among feminists, the general public, and the scientific community.
