Volume 12 of Advances in Gender Research consists of fourteen original essays contributed by a multi-national and multi-disciplinary group of scholars. Four essays discuss and analyze the writings of Harriet Martineau, a 19th century British author whose writings are now considered to be early examples of sociology and gender studies. The essays explore a range of Martineau's writings including her critical review of the Salem witch hunts and her letters to a young Irishman. Several essays focus on gendered implications of the state as defined on a national level or a supra-national one such as the European Union or the Eastern European Bloc. A third set of essays has gender and social institutions as its focus. The essays investigate family-related issues including power relations between same race and mixed race couples, childbearing, and the impact of religious fundamentalism, as well as issues related to aging, health and medicine, and sport. The essays complement one another in their examination of topics, issues and themes, adding nuance to contemporary knowledge in gender studies. The connections and parallels among essays are explored by an introductory essay by the editors.

This volume is about gender, health and medicine broadly defined. From the essays in it, it is abundantly clear that medicine is a gendered and class-structured institution. Taken as a whole the volume offers a critique of exclusively biomedical approaches to personal and public health and calls for more sociological input, qualitative research and an intersectional approach to help us understand various aspects of health and illness. Among the recurrent themes in the seven essays are the medicalization of personal and social problems, the commodification of healthcare, and questions of agency, responsibility and control on the parts of recipients and dispensers of healthcare. Six of the seven essays deal with Western medicine exclusively, the seventh examines a situation where women have a choice between Western and traditional treatment. Timely topics such as somatic distress among women with breast cancer, drug company funding of research on women's sexual problems, and racial and ethnic health disparities are represented. A companion volume will focus on conventional and unconventional approaches to managing pregnancy and childbirth. The intended audience is the social science community, especially those who are interested in the social scientific study of medicine or of gender including those who may not be familiar with the areas in which the two overlap.
