The team that produced the first edition of this comprehensive handbook -- reviewed as the "definitive" reference and an "extraordinary" tool for research on women's psychology -- updates and expands the content to include the newest and breaking research in this young field. With more than 50 percent of the content new compared to the 1993 edition, this will be of wide interest to students and scholars of women's psychology. Written by more than a dozen of the most eminent psychologists in this field, the chapters include historical developments in the study of the psychology of women, insights into women's psychology at stages from conception to senior years, gender stereotypes, and women's friendships as well as romantic relationships. Chapters also address women's health issues from premenstrual syndrome to rape, intimate partner violence and sexual harassment. Women's work life - from achievement to career development and the integration of work and family roles - are also included.
