An Ethnographic Focus on Menopause
Dona Lee Davis
Price: CDN$19.95
What is universal and presumably physiological in women's experience of menopause? What is variable and cultural? Can status change vs. status continuity in middle age affect or mediate menopausal symptoms? How does one go about conducting an ethnography of menopause? Davis explores these questions in a southwest Newfoundland fishing village.

The book will be of interest to specialists in women's studies and aging, to public health and medical practitioners, as well as to the general reader. Included is a review of medical and social science literature on menopause.

"A fine beginning of what should become a growing body of literature."--Medical Anthropology Quarterly

"She does such a fine job of introducing the people of Grey Rock Harbour to her readers that we see the village and its people through the eyes of the woman."--Midlife Wellness, The Center for Climacteric Studies, University of Florida
