Sinopsis:

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.

Review:

Three decades ago, information about women's health was hoarded by physicians and doled out sparingly to their female patients. Our Bodies, Ourselves, first published in 1969, helped change that situation. The latest edition runs 752 pages and covers a stunning range of territory about women's physical beings: fitness (this section includes a reminder that overweight women have a right to not exercise), reproductive health, aging, sexuality, and childbirth. It also includes thick chapters on relationships and information about mental-health issues, including psychotherapy. The New Our Bodies, Ourselves is the straightest-talking, most comprehensive book about women's health on the market.
