Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1307. Reviews the book, Menstruation, Health, and Illness edited by Diana L. Taylor and Nancy F. Woods (see record 1991-98580-000). This edited volume, containing 20 articles solicited from presenters at the seventh conference of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research held at the University of Michigan in 1987, adds significantly to our knowledge of women's experiences with the menstrual cycle. The real strength of this volume, however, is not with its breadth of topics but with its focus on methodological issues. Readers are reminded by several contributors that traditional research is neither objective nor apolitical. Overall, Mansfield appreciated the convenience of having 20 different articles on women's experiences with menstruation, some cutting edge work, located in one volume.
