Palgrave Macmillan UK, 6 set 2005 - 298 pagine
Ranging from Aristotle to twentieth-century gynaecology, contributions to this volume trace the semiotics of menstruation from magical act to evolutionary deficiency. The result is the first comprehensive historical study of how menstruation has been understood within various cultural traditions, with reference to political and social institutions, and medical and religious practices. Includes a guide for scholars on bibliographical and archival sources for the study of menstruation.
