Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Of all the reproductive techniques available today, surrogate motherhood is possibly the most controversial and least understood option. Although thousands of surrogate-assisted births have taken place, perceptions about surrogacy have been colored by the media and ongoing legal and ethical debates. Here, cultural anthropologist Ragone sets controversy aside to present the world of surrogacy as perceived and described by those most intimately involved in it, from program directors and their staffs to the surrogate mothers and the couples who have contracted with them. Based on extensive interviews as well as the latest theoretical research, this unique study is always frank and compelling while avoiding judgments and sensationalism. It should be of interest to anyone interested in the phenomena of surrogacy, from researchers to prospective surrogate mothers and commissioning couples. Highly recommended.
