Reproducing the Womb

Images of Childbirth in Science, Feminist Theory, and Literature

Alice E. Adams crafts a subtle new response to the controversies surrounding reproductive freedom and the implications of medical technology. She explores a spectrum of competing visions of childbearing, from misogynistic nightmares of matriarchal control to feminist utopias. Firmly rooted in political reality, Adams offers innovative answers to the questions posed by the intimate interconnections, and the perceived conflicts, between fetus and mother, individual and collective.
