Reproduction, Globalization, and the Stateconceptualizes and puts into practice a global anthropology of reproduction and reproductive health. Leading anthropologists offer new perspectives on the impact of transnational migration and global flows of communications, commodities, and biotechnologies on the reproductive lives of women and men in diverse societies throughout the world. Their fascinating ethnographies, based in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Western Europe, provide insight into reproduction and reproductive health broadly conceived to encompass population control, HIV/AIDS, assisted reproductive technologies, paternity tests, sex work, and humanitarian assistance. Contributors address the methodological challenges confronting anthropologists conducting research on globalization, including ways of combining fine-grained ethnography with analyses of large-scale political, economic, and ideological forces. Their essays illuminate complex interactions among global and state population policies and politics; public health, human rights, and feminist movements; diverse medical systems; religious practices, doctrines, and institutions; intimate relationships, and individual aspirations.Contributors Aditya Bharadwaj Caroline H.
