'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.

This is a major asset for all concerned with medical interventions, health care and public policy.' - Professor Raewyn Connell, author of Gender: In World Perspective and Masculinities
