Minority Women, Health and Healing in the U.S.: Selected Bibliography and Resources.
Ruzek, Sheryl, Ed.; And Others
Designed to draw together major research, reference, background, and theoretical works focused on health issues of minority women of color in the United States, this bibliography was compiled to provide faculty in postsecondary educational institutions with references to materials which direct attention to health issues of significance to minority women. This bibliography suggests specific areas in which there is and is not an extant literature. It is not intended to be exhaustive or comprehensive in the range of topics or minority groups included. Rather, it is intended to be a stimulus to both teaching and research in areas which for too long have been ignored. The major focus of the references is on social science perspectives on minority women's health and on topics at the intersection of social science and clinical issues. A limited number of clinical references are included. The bibliography is organized into five major sections, one of comparative and reference works and the other four focused on specific groups of minority women: Afro-American, Asian American, Latina American, and Native American. Each major section is organized into the following six categories: General Background and Reference Works; Historical Works; Health Status; Behavior; Utilization and Policy; Reproduction; Sexuality; Maternal and Child Health; Mental Health; Drugs and Alcohol; and Providers of Health Care.
