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-is also included.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Substantially updated, this volume will be an invaluable resource; the first edition merits retention for its seminal research in the field. Highly Recommended." - Choice
"Denmark and Paludi's (2008) handbook provides a comprehensive perspective on current issues that are central for both academic and clinical psychologists." - Sex Roles
"Although great strides have been made in the psychology of women since its conception in the 1970s, the societal conditions that called on feminist researchers to create and nurture the field still exist. Women's subordinate status relative to men still influences several aspects of women's psychological well-being. Therefore, a targeted focus on the psychology of women remains paramount, and Psychology of Women: A Handbook of Issues and Theories is a critical tool and useful reference to a comprehensive investigation in this area. Researchers and scholars interested in understanding more about the depths and implications of a psychology of women will be interested in this handbook. It proves an excellent source for a more detailed analysis of many topics unique to the study of women's psychology. Each chapter provides an in-depth analysis that could serve as supplemental reading to a textbook or a comprehensive review of the most recent research on a given topic. The book may also be used as a text for an advanced or graduate seminar in the psychology of women or a reference tool for a teacher or a researcher interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the topic before teaching a unit, guiding a student, or beginning a program of research." - American Journal of Psychology
