Description - Pragmatic Women and Body Politics by Margaret Lock

This thought-provoking volume explores women's responses to medical issues and technologies, from infertility in East Africa to prenatal screening in America. It also addresses wider themes, including the emergence of the breast cancer movement, and reactions to environmental hazards. In a series of accessible case studies, the contributors show that women react pragmatically to medical technology, with responses ranging from acceptance to resistance to indifference. This book will be a key text in medical anthropology and women's studies.
