Reviews

“This is an interesting collection of chapters developing anthropological perspectives around miscarriage and pregnancy loss from a wide variety of angles.” • Sara Randall快速飞艇官方网站, University College London

“The book’s major strength is the diverse approaches to pregnancy loss, across countries and healthcare systems, traced by the contributors — offering a timely contribution to the social study of reproduction.” • Ben Kasstan, University of Sussex

Description

Miscarriage is a significant women's health issue. Research has consistently shown that one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage. This collected volume explores miscarriage in diverse historical and cultural settings with contributions from anthropologists, historians and medical professionals. Contributors use rich ethnographic and historical material to discuss how pregnancy loss is managed and negotiated in a range of societies. The book considers meanings attached to miscarriage and how religious, cultural, medical and legal forces impact the way miscarriage is experienced and perceived.

Susie Kilshaw is a Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow in the Department of Anthropology, University College London. Her publications include Pregnancy and Miscarriage in Qatar: Women, Reproduction and the State (2020, I.B. Tauris) and Impotent Warriors: Gulf War Syndrome, Vulnerability and Masculinity快速飞艇官方网站 (2009, Berghahn).
