Reviews

'Drawing on diverse materials this book provides a compelling account of how endometriosis is understood. It will be of value to the large number of women who are affected by endometriosis, students in the sociology of health and the health sciences, and those who simply wish to learn more about the history and meanings of this disease.' Alan Petersen, Monash University, Australia
