Texte du rabat

The relationship between the menstrual cycle and women's cognitive and emotional state has fascinated scientists for over a century. Anne Walker shows that women are neither the victims of raging hormonal fluctuations, nor entirely unaffected by them. Unlike most previous publications that focus on menstruation (rather than the whole cycle), the "Menstrual Cycle" presents a well-researched study of the entire menstrual cycle and its relationship to women's lives. Anne Walker critically examines previous work on menstruation, the cycle, and women's psychological state, and sets it in its historical and socio-cultural context. She concludes that menstrual cycle research is entering a new phase of development, with a shift towards a growing concern with women's experiences and the meaning of menstruation in the social sciences, reflecting a change in the way that psychology and sociology conceptualize the body.

Résumé
The book focuses not just on menstruation, but on the whole 'menstrual' cycle and its relationship to women's lives. Anne Walker's cross-cultural analysis exposes the limitations of the normal textbook descriptions.
