"As the title implies, Pollard's book about reproduction in all its guises places the subject in the context of social, human, and environmental concerns. The text, though thoroughly based on current biologic, genetic, physiologic, and scientific knowledge, is remarkably readable....The section on the history of artificial control of fertility is particularly interesting and provides the longitudinal perspective so frequently neglected. Highly recommended...." Choice
