Reproductive Health in India (History, Politics, Controversies)
Reproductive Health in India (History, Politics, Controversies)
Description
About the Book:

Within the scholarly fields of demography, development studies, medica anthropology and public policy, the history of reproduction has been dominated by preconceived and often a historical ideas about India's supposed long-term trend towards "over-population." When these scholarly fields have invoked histories of fertility and contraception, these histories have largely been made to serve as the "pre-modern" antithesis to a fully "modern" future.

In contrast, Reproductive Health in India brings together historians to tackle the complex questions of reproduction in modern India. Taken together, the essays interrogate the very idea that reproduction is simply a clinch-pin for effecting other social and economic transformations. Instead, these histories map out and ask questions of the institutions, discourses and practices by which women's reproductive health came to hold meaning and play strategic roles in the multiple and at times competing agendas such as social reform, the medical sciences, cultural nationalism, and colonial public health.

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
