Women and Madness (Revised & Updated)

by Phyllis Chesler
£16.99   paperback  Palgrave (2006)

Women and Madness (Revised & Updated) by Phyllis Chesler Phyllis Chesler's pioneering book Women and Madness remains startlingly relevant today, over 30 years since its initial publication in 1972. With over 2.5 million copies sold, this seminal book is unanimously regarded as the definitive work on the subject of women's psychology. In this new edition, Chesler's original research and findings are supported by her perspectives on today's issues related to the subjects in the original book including: eating disorders, postpartum depression, biological psychiatry, important feminist political findings, female genital mutilation and more.

"Intense, rapid, brilliant. A pioneer contribution to the feminization of psychiatric thinking and practice."
(Adrienne Rich)
