Editorial Reviews

Review

“Powerful. . . . Bridges builds a thoughtful and important argument. . . . An enormously challenging and valuable book.”
(Rayna Rapp Anthropological Quarterly 2012-05-08)

“The richness of this book’s ethnographic accounts is truly extraordinary, as is a detailed discussion of federal and state programs. . . . Highly recommended.”
(Choice 2011-10-01)

“Her work should be read by everyone involved in delivering healthcare to those without class privilege.”
(Rayna Rapp Anthropological Quarterly 2012-01-01)

“A beautifully written and well researched ethnographic study of the delivery of prenatal and birth health care at one of our nation’s most preeminent public hospitals.”
(Laura Mamo American Journal Of Sociology 2012-03-01)

From the Inside Flap

“Bridges radically and actively demonstrates the truth of her claims through outstanding ethnography and analysis. Eminently praiseworthy.”—Robbie Davis-Floyd, author of Birth as American Rite of Passage and lead editor for British Models That Work

“An important and timely contribution to recent scholarship on race in science, medicine, and public health. From the first page, I did not want to put the book down.”—Lundy Braun, Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Africana Studies, Brown University

“There is no doubt that this is an important topic, and one the author is well-positioned to explore. Very, very powerful."—Cheryl Mattingly, author of Healing Dramas and Clinical Plots

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a model of how to engage theoretical concepts aboiut biopower, state surveillance of bodies, the intersections of gender and race, and racial formations without losing sight of real people, their actions, and (at time limited) choices.

It was as if the author was sitting with you telling her story...easy to read. I could relate to some of the situations and experiences, mostly having observed it while in waiting rooms. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
