Description
(Winner of the Longman-History Today Book Award in 2009) Meticulously researched and always entertaining, British medical historian Louise Foxcroft here traces the history of "the change of life" from its appearance in classical texts and the medical literature of the 18th century to contemporary clinical approaches. For more than 2,000 years, attitudes toward menopause have created dread, shame, and confusion, leading to bizarre treatments and often dangerous surgery, and formalized a misogyny which lingers in the treatment of menopausal women today. Foxcroft challenges such absurd yet persistent assumptions as the idea that sex stops at menopause, or that aging should be feared.

"Not many Cambridge academics can make you laugh aloud and gasp with shock. Louise Foxcroft does both in a rampaging history of the relationship between doctors and the menopause through three centuries. It's enough to give a septuagenarian bishop hot flushes, believe me."Mail on Sunday (London)
