'This important and highly illuminating book fills a large gap in the literature on infertility and reproductive technologies and should be read by everyone with a connection to the field.' Professor Susan Golombok, Director of Centre for Family Research, University of Cambridge 'This impressive multi-disciplinary collection makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the relationship between infertility, ethnicity and culture and how ethnicity and culture shape the experience of infertility in the West. The editors and chapter authors draw attention to important theoretical and methodological issues and to health and policy concerns.' Gayle Letherby, Professor of Sociology, University of Plymouth 'The editors have done an excellent job of compiling in one place a group of informative and interesting chapters which draw our attention to a new perspective from which to view both the experience of infertility and the reality of industrialised societies.' From the foreword by Professor Arthur L. Greil, Alfred University, New York
Worldwide, over 80 million people are involuntarily childless, a devastating experience for many with significant consequences for the social and psychological well-being of women in particular. This groundbreaking volume is the first to highlight the ways in which diverse ethnic, cultural and religious identities impact upon understandings of technological solutions for infertility and associated treatment experiences.The collection begins with a consideration of some of the key methodological challenges for social research on ethnicity and infertility. The book introduces and examines concepts of infertility such as the bio-medical definition and discusses the companion concept of ethnicity, critiquing the shortcomings of simple assessments of ethnicity common in the health literature. It also discusses the relationship between the ethnic identity of both researcher and the researched and outlines some of the major issues which can arise in engaging minority ethnic populations in research studies on sensitive topics.Drawing on original research, the book goes on to explore infertility and reproductive technologies in relation to ethnicity in a selection in of 'Western' societies and look at the interfaces between the constitutional 'right to life of the unborn' and new reproductive technologies in Ireland. This is the first book to cover new reproductive technologies and how they are applied to deal with infertility in large ethnic majorities in developed countries. Editors and authors are the international leaders in the field. It presents original research covering major ethnic minorities in the UK, USA, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, Turkey and Israel.
