Description

Deeply Private, Incredibly Public: Readings on the Sociology of Human Reproduction educates readers about cultural attitudes toward reproduction and pregnancy, changes taking place in reproductive medicine and technology, the meaning of reproductive power, and what the impact of reproduction and family might mean for them someday.

The book is organized into three sections. The first addresses reproduction from both medical and cultural perspectives. The readings cover a range of topics, including the medicalization of birth, family planning, and fertility rates and birth statistics around the world.

The second section explores autonomy, patriarchy, and reproductive control. Students read about the impact of social structures on reproduction, factors involved in abortion, the role of men in reproductive freedom, and what reproduction means in societies where women struggle to receive equal treatment.

Section three considers what is actually being created and how this creation occurs. Diverse methods of reproduction and parenting including adoption, surrogacy, genetic engineering, and the harvesting of embryos introduce students to issues that redefine conception, birth, and parenthood.

Sensitive and insightful, Deeply Private, Incredibly Public is a valuable resource for courses in sociology.

Catherine Marrone received both her B.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from Stony Brook University in New York and completed two years of post-doctoral work at the Yale School of Medicine Department of Epidemiology and Public Health.
