"This is a magnificent resource manual...140 chapters with detailed introductions to topics, easy-to-use annotated references written by leading experts in diverse fields, all contributing to building an up-to-date knowledge base in the exciting area of women's health." --Mary Roth Walsh, PhD, Editor of "Women, Men and Gender" "The enormous popular interest in the content areas covered by this handbook is reflected in the number of paperbacks devoted to many of these topics.
