Reviews

' The Palgrave Handbook of Gender and Healthcaremarks the coming of age of the rapidly growing field of gender and health. Providing detailed and nuanced analyses of different aspects of healthcare - equity, access, service delivery, the healthcare professions this Handbook moves the field's boundaries farther and deeper. It will be difficult for anyone after this to look at healthcare without a gender lens. This is absolutely essential reading for all healthcare students and professionals.' - Professor Gita Sen, Indian Institute of Management, India

'This is a veritable treasure trove and an exemplary demonstration of how active editing can produce a Handbook accessible to practitioners and students alike. Our thinking about gender and health and about gender mainstreaming will never be the same again.' - Celia Davies, Professor Emerita, The Open University, UK

'This Handbook is a rich and impressive resource, ranging across continents and societies, and opening up fresh issues as well as surveying the field. The authors take us far beyond conventional ideas about sex differences, to explore the gender relations that affect disease, injury and well-being. New perspectives are opened on the gender regimes in health care organizations and health professions. This is a major asset for all concerned with medical interventions, health care and public policy.' - Professor Raewyn Connell, author of Gender: In World Perspectiveand Masculinities

'Kuhlmann and Annandale's outstanding edited collection brings together foremost international experts on gender and healthcare, providing definitive analyses of how gender links to a range of contemporary challenges facing healthcare. Researchers, students and policy makers will find this collection an essential resource.' - Professor Sara Arber,

Centre for Research on Ageing and Gender (CRAG), University of Surrey, UK

'In The Palgrave Handbook of Gender and Healthcare, leading scholars from around the world provide essential guidance and direction for steering gender into the mainstream of healthcare. It's an indispensable guidebook for health practitioners, managers, policy-makers and researchers alike.' - Dr Will Courtenay, Men's Health Consulting, Berkeley, California, USA

'The varied approaches and theoretical understandings described in the volume, constitute a very essential and helpful resource to those interested in bringing gender sensitivity into health care, and in particular to health-care professionals, researchers and policy makers.' - Berit Rostad, Faculty of Medicine, Trondheim, Norway

'This 'tour de force' of a handbook brings together the work of 48 authors in 26 chapters, clustered into 5 parts, topped and tailed by an easy to read and informative introduction and conclusion. Each chapter finishes with a useful bullet point summary and suggested further reading. Together the chapters blend theory and health care practices and bring alive the importance of embedding gender analysis and responses within different national and local contexts...In summary the handbook is informative, interesting and timely it comes highly recommended.' - Perspectives in Public Health

'...a very essential and helpful resource to those interested in bringing gender sensitivity into health care...adequately presented...Thebook is a 'must-have'; an equally indispensable handbook to health and social scientists, health professionals and policy makers.' - European Journal of Public Health

'By highlighting several cases of injustice and either providing us with country specific recommendations or an analysis of previous actions taken, this handbook is clearly intended to motivate political action.' - Science as Culture
