Using recent studies on the subject as well as many primary sources not yet accessible in English, this book gives a close analysis of theories concerning women's bodies in such authors as the Hippocratics and Aristotle. The author demonstrates the centrality of menstruation in classical theories of female physiology, pathology, and reproduction, and suggests that this had both negative and positive repercussions in attitudes towards women's bodies in that society.
