    Book summary:

    This unique volume focuses on the psychosexual and social effects of female genital mutilation, an ancient, deeply entrenched custom saturating the larger part of Africa. Over a period of six years, Author Hanny Lightfoot-Klein trekked through outlying areas of Sudan, Kenya, and Egypt, where she lived with a number of African families. What she learned by way of in-depth personal interviews and firsthand observation has enabled her to add a previously unknown and often astonishing dimension to our knowledge of ritual practices and human sexuality. This valuable book will be extremely helpful to professionals and scholars in women's studies, social psychology, psychotherapy, psychiatry, gynecology, sexology, as well as cross-cultural and African studies. It should also interest anyone who is concerned with male circumcision in the United States.

    Book summary:

    This unique book seeks a more gender-sensitive approach to pharmacologic research and treatment by focusing on scholarly work connecting psychopharmacology and feminism. The chapters document the links between feminism, women's studies, and practice and research in psychopharmacology. Psychopharmacology From a Feminist Perspective explores the relationship between feminism and psychopharmacology and stresses the need to make drug testing and treatment gender-sensitive. Chapters range from feminist critiques of science and medicine to the roles of sex and gender in determining responsivity to psychoactive drugs.

    Psychopharmacology From a Feminist Perspective helps therapists and their female patients understand sex differences in pharmacology and the need, in some cases, to tailor drug dosages for women. Contributing authors, both women and men, include psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and laypersons. They cover a wide array of topics, including:

    • patterns of drug use by gender
    • recognition of sex/gender differences in medication side-effects
    • the impact of medication side-effects on clientswillingness to cooperate with treatment recommendations
    • special aspects of prescribing for women of color
    • how women's reports of medication side-effects are often dismissed
    • how women and the elderly are portrayed in psychotropic drug advertisements

      This illuminating book is appropriate for all levels of nonphysician therapists who work with clients receiving medication, psychiatrists and other physician prescribers of psychoactive drugs, policymakers, and women's studies scholars. Psychopharmacology From a Feminist Perspective is an involving reader for graduate courses in women's health and feminist critiques of science, as well as an informative reference for professionals involved in therapy and the dispensing of psychoactive drugs.

    Book summary:

    This new book looks at an important issue--the emotional impact of success upon women--at a time when opportunities are more available to them than ever before. Using research, clinical experience, and personal anecdotes, the contributors examine the timely issues of women and worry, women's sense of their own entitlement, fear of success and fear of failure, and women's impostor feelings. The dilemma that feminist therapists frequently experience of encouraging women clients, often superbly qualified in their fields, to take a risk that might involve rejection or failure, is highlighted here. Therapists will recognize the often expressed fears of academic and intellectual failure, as well as the fears of various interpersonal failures that result from a combination of women's opportunities in society as well as socialization.

    Book summary:

    Womens Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality explores the strong relationships food and sex have represented to women over the years. No other book has spelled out so clearly the parallels between sex and eating nor integrated the relationship of these to womens basic need to be loved.

    Todays dilemma for women--be fat or go hungry--and the endless variations and unsatisfying solutions to this problem have contributed to the incidence of anorexia, bulimia, and obesity. The pursuit of slimness, the obsession with having the perfect body, excessive aerobicizing, and diet books ad nauseam are all part of this phenomenon. Authors in Womens Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality skillfully discuss the parallel between womens obsession with sex and romance in the fifties and their obsession with food today. An important book for all women, it sheds light on the complex issues facing women and devotes special attention to the career woman and the additional pressures to be slim and stay slim.

    The woman who reads this potentially life-changing book can examine, question, and change her behavior, using the specific step-by-step program aid included in the book. This book is for every woman who has ever worried about being too fat or too sexual. Womens Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality will appeal to women of all ages--young women and their mothers will be fascinated by the parallels between sexual obsessions of thirty years ago and the eating obsessions of today.

    This healing book will particularly attract single career women for whom sex and relationships are fraught with complications. Counselors and therapists will find this book an excellent resource in their work with helping women. It is also a good auxiliary text for courses in Womens Studies focusing on psychology and history of women and the sociology of women and eating disorders.
