Psychological and Psychiatric Problems in Men
Joan Gomez's book provides an account of a grossly neglected area: the psychological, social and sexual problems of men. The issues dealt with are highly topical and include aggression; violence and criminality; sexuality; and also problems such as alcohol and drug dependence. The book is based on an analysis of societal influences as well as developmental, anatomical and physiological factors and incorporates the latest research in medicine and gender studies.
