"By approaching women's health from a biopsychosocial perspective, Loue and Sajatovic have designed an encyclopedia suitable for both health professionals and general readers. The first section introduces women's health with a detailed examination of its history, women in health professions, the impact of work on women's health, and women's role in providing health care. The second section, alphabetically organized, addresses medicine, legal issues, history, beauty, and complementary and alternative approaches to health....This encyclopedia meets the need for a comprehensive, up-to-date reference work that incorporates social awareness with clinical knowledge." Summing Up: Highly recommended. All collections.
(J. M. Coggan, Choice, January 2005)
