Now available in paperback, this critically acclaimed handbook takes a socio-political look at how the past thirty years have witnessed an increasing interest and shift in the thinking of the psychology of women. This shift has been due, in part, to the influx of a great number of women into psychology and the social sciences, and in part to feminist objections to earlier theories of Freud and others, now considered to be male centered and even contemptuous of women.
