The Woman in the Body: A Cultural Analysis of Reproduction

by

The Woman in the Body: A Cultural Analysis of Reproduction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A bold reappraisal of science and society, The Woman in the Body explores the different ways that women's reproduction is seen in American culture. Contrasting the views of medical science with those of ordinary women from diverse social and economic backgrounds, anthropologist Emily Martin presents unique fieldwork on American culture and uncovers the metaphors of economy and alienation that pervade women's imaging of themselves and their bodies. A new preface examines some of the latest medical ideas about women's reproductive cycles.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 243-263) and index.

About the Author

Emily Martin is professor of anthropology at Princeton University and author of Flexible Bodies: Tracking Immunity in American Culture from the Days of Polio to the Age of AIDS.
