‘In this highly topical book, Payne provides comprehensive
synthesis of research evidence on the relationship between sex,
gender and health. Researchers and policy-makers have only recently
begun to take an inclusive approach to gender and health. The
health of men and women will be an indispensable resource for the
development of research and practice.’ Ellen Annandale,
University of Leicester
‘It is difficult to imagine a more timely book on gender and health. Women’s health movement, research advocacy and theory emerging more than three decades ago. The study of men’s health and gender did not fully issue until the 1990’s. Until now, these two areas of inquiry and health policy have developed separately, and the pursuit of gender equity in public health has been stymied by a lack of integrative vision. Sarah Payne provides a conceptual bridge between these growing sub fields with this lucidly written, well-documented and comprenhsive analysis of gender differences and similarities between women’s’ and men’s health around the globe.’ Don Sabo, D’Youville College
