5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful book! A real eye-opener!, 15 May 2001
This review is from: The Politics of Breastfeeding (Issues in women's health) (Paperback)
I often wondered why women do not breastfeed anymore. Is it because it seems easier to bottlefeed, is it because they heard so much about possible problems, is it just because they are to vain and afraid what it will do to their breasts, etc?
Then I came across this book... breastfeeding is a long forgotten art, caused by many factors, main of them change in woman's place in society and workplace through industrial revolution, forceful and false advertising of artificial baby foods from manufacturers, often supported by medical profession, etc.
This book is a great study of the phenomena of breastfeeding (or rather its decline) and is well researched and supported by references of studies. The style is very friendly and easy to read, full of photos and with the extensive reference guide at the end.
I strongly recommend this book not only to mothers, but also to medical profession, anyone who studies the history of economics, media or advertising as well as human relations!
An absolute MUST read!
