Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In the past two decades there has been a flood of scholarship in the history of women and medicine fueled by the growth in the "new social history" and the most recent wave of feminism in this country. This volume synthesizes this research so that a coherent picture of women's health and society's changing views can be presented. Twenty original essays appear in five sections: definitions of health and disease; orthodox health care; alternative medical care; social and political dynamics of women's health concerns; and health care providers.
