5.0 out of 5 stars The scientific and social implications of IVF and stem cell research, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Biological Relatives: IVF, Stem Cells, and the Future of Kinship (Experimental Futures) (Paperback)
This is a tour de force of cultural biology, managing to combine a detailed history of how in vitro fertilisation and related interventions have been developed - initially through the refinement of techniques and technologies rather than with a single overarching aim - with a fascinating exploration of the social and cultural implications which such capabilities entail. The inclusion of a discussion of feminist art works by Helen Chadwick and Gina Glover, amongst others, adds to the emotional and intellectual richness of the book. My copy is bristling with post-it notes and covered in pencil marks to remind me of especially salient paragraphs and touching insights - of particular fascination is the author's investigation of the work and lived experience of clinical and laboratory staff.
