Editorial Reviews

Review

"An extremely impressive book. It not only contributes to our theoretical understanding of the interaction of class, patriarchy, culture, and reproduction but it has important policy implications for improving the lives of infertile Egyptian women. As research on gender in the Middle East proliferates, this work is a symbol of the wisdom of disaggregating our understanding of 'women.'"—International Journal of Middle East Studies



"By exploring the consequences of childlessness, Inhorn offers important insights for demographers and others interested in understanding the desire for and meaning of children."—Studies in Family Planning
