The Woman in the Body
By:Emily Martin
Published on 2001 by Beacon Press

This bold reappraisal of science and society explores the different ways that women's reproduction is seen in American culture. |Spectacular. There is no better study of the power of metaphor in modern medicine.| —Thomas W. Laqueur, author of Making Sex |One of the greatest strengths of this fascinating book is Martin's careful analysis of how medical language about women's bodies reveals cultural assumptions about women and their life's purpose. . . . Highly recommended.| —Judith Walzer Leavitt, Bulletin of the History of Medicine
