It is widely recognized that men and women in societies all over the world have very different experiences of sickness and health. This collection brings together biological and social anthropologists whose work illustrates how these subdisciplines have approached the task of explaining such differences. It demonstrates that an understanding of science and culture, using the notions of biological "sex" and socio-culturally constructed "gender" are both essential for furthering analyses of men's and women's, boys' and girls' experiences of health and disease. It addresses the important topics of gender differences in parental care, cardiovascular disease, reproductive health, and psychological illness, and looks at how the medicalization of women and their relative absence from models of population health might affect their experiences of preventative health measures. This book will be particularly useful for students in human sciences or anthropology courses, or anyone wishing to gain an interdisciplinary perspective on the subject.

Book Description:

Sex, Gender and Health explains the differences in the health experiences of boys and girls, men and women. It differs from other texts in bringing together social and biological scientists, improving communication between them. It addresses the important topics of gender differences in parental care, cardiovascular disease, reproductive health and psychological illness. Its international and cross-cultural perspective will make it particularly useful for students on interdisciplinary human sciences or anthropology courses.

Review:

'... extremely interesting and useful ... I highly recommend it for specialists and students in many different fields, biological and social anthropology being only the first of these.' E. Godina, Journal of Biosocial Science
