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.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
