This book provides an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to women’s health. Historical, sociocultural, psychological and biophysiological aspects of women’s development are woven together to provide a complete women-centered perspective of health. While several excellent books in print provide information on diagnosis and treatment of women and address women’s growth and development, Lewis and Bernstein strive to fill a void by marrying these perspectives. The book also offers a thorough investigation into the life cycle of women, And The roles of women as individuals and members of their communities and cultures.
