Editorial Reviews

Review

"A remarkable synthesis of ethnography about infertile Egyptian women's attempts to have children, history of the development of Egyptian medical ideas and practices from ancient times, and contemporary political and economic analysis."—Lingua Franca



"Inhorn invokes in her vivid description of her informants' dilemmas and convincing analysis of their explanations of their infertility a combination of variables; gender issues are interwoven with political domination, colonial history, indigenous religious beliefs, economic problems such as poverty and deprivation, state policies regarding family planning and a whole series of interrelated areas."—Middle Eastern Studies

Format: Paperback
Dr. Marcia Inhorn harps upon three major themes: infertile Egyptian women's attempts at having children, the history of the development of Egyptian medical ideas and practices from ancient times and their effects on the present,and the present collaboration of econimic and political agendas. This book is for anyone studying or just want to know about infertility and the views of Egyptians.
