‘This excellent work on the contrasting cultural constructions of the menopause in Japan and North America accomplishes a great deal… Encounters with Aging is a brilliant contribution not only to medical anthropology but also to gerontology and feminist theory. . . . [It is] unfailingly literate, incisive, and passionate. It will have a wide audience, both lay and academic.’ - M. Margaret Clark, Medical Anthropology Quarterly
‘A powerful intervention in one of the most important debates of our time. Meticulous in her methods and wise in her insight, Lock tames a sea of stormy argument to show how complex and consequential is the interplay of culture and biology.’ - Jean Comaroff, University of Chicago
‘n many ways a tour-de-force. . . . Through her unique expertise on both Japan and medical anthropology, Lock has contributed a high-level synthesis that will reverberate through both fields for many years.’ - Nancy Rosenberger, Journal of Asian Studies
‘Encounters with Aging accomplishes what medical anthropology does best: it convinces through detailed analysis that the body, in all its ills and accomplishments, provides a profoundly cultural mapping of social relations.’ - Rayna Rapp, Culture, Medicine, and Psychiatry
‘Lock’s focus on menopause as a point of departure for discussing nature/culture dichotomies makes for a brilliant addition to the growing literature on the anthropology of the human body.’ - Library Journal
‘Fascinating. . . . It provides plenty for western doctors to think about.’ - Carol Cooper, The Lancet
